are these stock hubs for a 58 cj6 i don't like them much .
I don't think hubs were a "stock" option??
I think that those are aftermarket.
I think the drive flanges were stock.
I had "cutlass" hubs on mine when I got it. Used a big flat tip screwdriver to lock/unlock IIRC.
How do those work??
you have to pull out the lever and turn it , but these fall out and turn when i drive it not good . what should i do with them .
They shouldn't be that hard to turn.
Quite easy to operate in my past experience with them.
However you can look around here or E-bay and buy a set of drive flanges (cheap!) or another set of hubs. Most likely Warn Premiums but there are others.
maybe i will put on the warn hubs . i think that is the best way to go $130
Those look like Dualmatic hubs, and I owned a pair until last month. They should function similarly to the Warns. The levers should be wedged in place...do they disengage at inopportune moments? I'm just saying...don't fix it if it ain't broke. If it's broke, what in particular isn't functioning?
Yes, drive flanges are stock. Hubs were a dealer installed option until sometime in the mid-late '70s.
I expect your hubs will work better if you take them apart, clean and lubricate.
Yup, Dualmatic hubs, aftermarket. If you take them apart and clean them up you'll find a detent ball and spring that locks into an indention on the lever. It common for corrosion to cause these to become sticky and not want to stay locked. Disassemble 'em, clean 'em up and lube 'em and they should work fine. If you just don't like them then check out E-bay and various other sources for other types of hubs. You might do a search on locking hubs here about opinions/experiences of different brands/types. Good luck. Nickmil.
These might help.
thanks you that helps alot
I got a set of drive flanges you can have just pay shipping if you wanna go stock
