View Full Version : Manual Hub Conversion for 98?
12-02-2008, 09:09 AM
Ok guys its time for you to school a one ton guy on some little stuff. I am trying to find manual hub conversion for a 98 Mazda B4000. The axle tag tells me that it is the exact same thing that is found in a 98 explorer. SLA dana 35. I believe that the outer shaft is 27 spline.(please correct me if im wrong)
So far my search has been kind of hazy with no definate answers. Here is what i was thinking about buying.
Now for this part they tell me i need a manual hub spindle kit but i can not find one that will fit the axle. Thanks for all your input guys. anything will help.

Now that i have continued reading elsewhere it seems as if this axle is a direct drive and the t-case is the only thing which switches it from 4wd to
2wd. I am 5 hours away from the truck and have not had more than 15 minutes underneath it so is their anything to swap in. I would even consider some drive slugs since the stockers just do the samething. To bad i dont think they make Dana 35 slugs that would fit. Or do they?

you have the same front axle as an explorer but not the same hub setup.
98-00(some 00's) have the pulse vacuum hub BS.. while the explorers are a live axle from 95? and up (ifs?)
you can get these hubs. the old ones just pop off and you slide these on.
no need for new spindles or anything.

im having to do a hub swap myself but i dont really have the time to take off my hubs and check the splines i work 9 - 5 and here its usually dark when i get off anyone know how many splines a 94 has so i can go ahead and order my hubs and get the right ones the first time because im going to do brakes this weekend rotors and all and it would be great to go ahead do the hubs at the same time
