Brand New front hub banging loudly
so this is my first post on the ranger station!
i recently bought a 2000 ford ranger sport 3.0L 4x4
when i bought it the front drivers side wheel bearing/hub assembly had completely failed (i had to have it towed) and the front drive shaft was also taken off (needed rebuilt)
i got it back in my garage and put a brand new hub assembly in. i purchased the non-vacuum hub (i think its what it takes) and installed it. porblem solved, it drove like a champ (in 2WD that is...)
today i rebuilt the whole front drive shaft (CV & U-joint) and installed it. for the first time i engaged the 4x4. as soon as i started moving the front driver side hub started banging loudly, it shook the truck and sounded terrible.
obviously there is some issue with the hub. i'm not sure where to start though. if i installed it wrong, wouldn't the truck drive funny? a little advice and maybe some ideas would be great!
