    I have a 99 F250 superduty that I had warn hubs installed. Had a problem with the right locking hub. It packed up with a brownish powder and would not turn. Cleaned it all out, took it apart and found the inner spring broken. Warn says they do not make parts and you must buy a new set. Any help on a new spring on the inside?

    Quick remedy for me was to use a small rope inside.... helped me a few times in my off-road days with my jeep

    What ever you can do to make it work is how "Jeepers" do it. I did a lot of that in my earlier days. It doesn't have to be pretty but it does have to work! :)

    Just trying to find a spring big enough to fit inside and give a little pressure.

    I wish I would have had time to come in out of the cold over the winter and read this..
    I have two extra sets of Warns, one heavy duty, the other standard duty. Each one has one blown up hub in it in pieces.
