im working on my 88 stx 4x4 ranger with the high ride option, and the guy I bought it from had over tightend the lock ring nut for the front drive shaft. I was changing wheel bearings and both sides have broke. the local parts stores only cary parts for manuel locking hubs and dealer dosent cary it any more.. closest ive gotten is a 90 auto hub lock nut but the flange is to thick and machined diff. where on earth can I find these parts!!!
