swooper ,

Auto hub replacement is pretty much a no-brainer once you get your wheels off. Your auto-hub will slide right off. Then pop off the retainer ring. The cam assy slides right off along with several metal & plastic washers. Install the new parts in reverse.
((This is the extent of your auto-hub replacement))

After that, all that is left on your spindle is the small key, the spindle nut and all of the other stuff not associated with your auto-hub R&R.
((This is the perfect time to also inspect, grease, adjust or replace your wheel bearings too.))

Check out the exploded views in post #1.

If you have a jack, stand, flat screwdriver and tire iron you can do the R&R. No special tools needed and no technical knowledge needed for auto-hub R&R.
* Your auto hubs should have nothing more than a light coating of ATF fluid on them... no grease whatsoever.

EDIT :: Here are some links.

Skydiver,

Thanks for the explanation and links. They were very helpful. I repacked the bearings last year, so this should be an easy job...just wasn't sure if there was more to it than what you described.

Thanks to everyone's help, I replaced the auto hub on my drivers side without any problems. Took the car for a test drive any everything seemed fine, but now the ratcheting noise and clunk from what sounds like the drivers side is back. Is it possible that I need to replace the passenger side hub or could this be something else.

Before I replaced the hub, when I've heard the ratcheting noise and engaged the 4wd, the sound goes away.

Thanks

...You could either start your own thread or ask that question in one of the threads found at the bottom of the first post...They deal with problems with auto hubs..;)

I had a problem with my transfer case motor previously and replaced the bushing thanks to this site. Fixed the blinking light on the dash.

Questions here.

1. Why does Randy's Ring and Pinion call our Dana 35 front, the "AMC Model 35"? I have never heard it called that ever anywhere. To me AMC made the Gremlin...

2. Read the threads, but still don't understand. WRN 29071 and WRN 37780 are the same? Or is 37780 the higher-line hub?


3. Conversion kit, WRN32720, is shown as OUT-OF-STOCK at Randy's. Is the 32720 still made? (they do show an alternate, Yukon part no. YP W32720)

1) can you post a link to that info?

2) WRN 29071 is the stock replacement part.
WRN 37780 is a stronger hub that fits but it will show for a jeep Dana 35

3) Other places carry them such as 4wheelparts.com for about $87..You might have to ask Randy about his info...

BTW, you can get the Spicer kit pn# 28068X for $10 a side...Most all this is included in the first post except Randy's sites questions..

Sure...

http://www.ringpinion.com/DiffList.aspx?SearchMode=Make&MakeID=2&ModelID=250&Side=Front

Never seen the D35 called that.

..Most all this is included in the first post except Randy's sites questions..

In Post#1 the WRN 37780's are listed underneath the auto hubs pics, which made me think they were auto hubs. Then I saw Jamie's (410's) post about how the 37780's were stronger hubs, and i thought "Wait, he doesn't run auto's with his 35's, what is going on here..."

Anyways, I'm kinda dense sometimes especially after work, good job on the thread, lots of good info in its totality.

That is truly an error on Randy's part...;)

First, if you click on the AMC Dana 35 link, it is a cover for a Dana 35 jeep rear axle..

The title of AMC refers and covers all AMC (1954+) and Jeep (1946+) variants thru 1988, and those legacy designs retained by Chrysler (and several other manufacutrers) in later years which use AMC Transmissions, Transfer cases, and Axles...

...I can see how Randy's could get confused if they are familiar with parts only and not the vehicles themselves..Just as Ford Dana 35's front axle's are different than Jeep Dana 35 rear axles.

I hope this helped explain it some...

Just an FYI, the 37780 hubs are still available from Warn, I just ordered a set.

Also, a cheaper alternative to the warn conversion kit is to buy 2 of Ford part # D2TZ 1198 A. These are the wheel bearing nuts for older F150's. One part (kit with two nuts and a washer/spacer) does one side.

I work for a Ford dealer so my cost may not be typical. My cost for the set of hubs was $212 and the bearing nuts retail for $19 per side (prices are in CDN $).
