Hey there so my front drivers side hub has been damaged on my '95 stx 5spd (manual locking hub), and Ive been searching for a while to find a replacement in my area with no luck. I was just wondering since I know its a rare part if theres anyway to get this fixed as I hate walking out the door to see my truck sitting there not being able to drive it. was just wondering if somebody may have a compatible part or know of something that I can do to get my truck on the road, really don't want to get rid of it after just rebuilding the whole thing less the 10,000km ago. Any help would be great though, as I said I haven't had much luck finding a solution

How is the hub damaged? like you hit a curb and broke it off? In all honesty it'd be safe to drive like that other than you'll get road grime in the wheel bearings... And instructions on replacing the hub? remove tire, remove hub (the tire is the only thing holding it on), install new hub (once you find one), reinstall tire. Unless by hub you mean the spindle is toast, that's still not that bad of a job, you just need the hub socket and a breaker bar, it's a simple setup.

If you were closer I'd offer some of my spare parts (I have two hubs and a spindle sitting in the garage), but depending on what parts you really need that could be spendy to ship and someone closer probably has some to spare...

If it's the locking hub(s) you need, Warn makes replacement hubs for it (and is who manufactured the original OEM hubs as well, so it would be a direct replacement).

Warn pt# is 29071 for the manual hubs (pt#37780 is suggested if you have oversized tires and/or a front differential locker).
