Every 4WD ford owner knows the first thing you do is swap to manual hubs and toss the auto's in the trash!
Actually I think the Dual Rear Wheel is part of that made those parts so exspensive.

I was going to say cause a 4wd front hub assembly can be had any day of the week for $200 and probably a heck of a lot cheaper if you're resourceful. I assumed you were talking front, not rear...

Yes, it was the front hubs but they are a diffence part then the single rear wheel and cost over twice as much.

Can't replace single front wheel bearings on a '99. Unit bearing has to be replaced....but that is not what make them expensive. Its the seal that has to be replaced on the stub shaft (if you actually do it correctly). This is the sole reason many peoples auto hubs do not work. That seal is expensive and has to be pressed off and back on.

Well, glad I don't have one of those then, my wheel bearings and the ones we did on a friends solid axle 4wd diesel excursion a few weeks back were $20 a pop for the skf brand at autozone.

Plus at the time I could only find that seal at the stealership. There's also a bearing on the inside of the hub for the outer axel shaft that has a race that has to be pressed into the hub. That whole project was nightmare.

So it sounds like the manual hubs are something I should be looking for that is already done.

Khris, sub hoa is usually for a gated neighborhood within a master plan neighborhood. There's maybe 40 houses in my subdivision and the board members live there. They are usually the types that have their noses in everyone's business or at least want to. Good times indeed.

LOL, I totally get the point of HOA's and they're there for a certain type of person. I'm definitely not one of those types. I bought a house so that I could do what I wanted. If I wanted to be told what I could and couldn't do to my own house, I'd stay a renter and skip the associated responsibility of home ownership! While I really hope my neighbors take care of their houses... I'm not going to tell them what they can or can't do. It's the chance I'm willing to take to live a life style in a house that I want. HOA's seem like a miniature communist community to me!!! LOL (Sarcasm!!!)

Manual hubs are VERY common on them. Don't let it be a deciding factor on the purchase when the time comes if it doesn't have them.

I to live in a community with two HOAs. Had I known it was going to be worse than living in Russia during the Cold War I would have looked elsewhere. This is our first experience with HOAs and i'm hoping it will be my last. Every time I turn around I am getting a non compliance letter for a weed in my landscaping or pictures of dog turds that I clean up everyday. I have written response letter after response letter to make them happy. They have taken any happiness of home ownership from us.

HOA's never bothered me too much until I moved to this house. I have different priorities now and I'm tired of complying with the nitpicking. I look on the bright side tho, I bought the place 3 years ago and the rise in prices will give me the bullets to cash out a bit and get what we need.

I remember renting at one point and I got a warning for one of my car tires being parked hanging halfway off the drive and onto the rocks in the front yard. Rocks, not grass or bushes but rocks... All I could do was laugh. People and their little perfect worlds are comical to me! BTW, when people say HOA's are good cause it keeps home values up I typically just wonder when they're going to move cause they obviously bought their house as an investment and not a home. I bought my house in Az as a home just as I bought my house here as a home. If I profit, awesome, if I loose money, so be it. Either way, my goal is achieved by making it my home, not what the rest of the block thinks my home should be.

Tonight sucks... I gotta pull the upper control arms off the race truck which involves removing coilovers and all sorts of other goodies so that I can tighten up 4 nuts. The truck should be pretty much race ready after that. Just need to double check on board supplies, pull it out into the sunlight and inspect the chassis for cracks and then load it on the trailer and park it till race week! I'm a month ahead of race day... Strange concept to not have a crap load to do all the way up till we hit the starting line!

It's laughable but that crap seems to matter to people. Still, onward and upward.

When I was renting in Florida the HOA was a nightmare. When I moved in I told the land lord my parents would be living with us but she forgot to mention the neighborhood had an HOA run by the third reich. At the time we had 6 cars, 2 motorcycles, and 2 trailers. Plus the garage was packed with everything my parents owned. If we parked in an empty lot or on the road they threw a fit. I ended up having to squeeze the bikes in the garage, sell two cars, and we manhandled the small trailer into the back yard. I still couldn't placate them and they would complain if I had the garage door open when I was working on the car. There was literally something in the bylaws saying the garage could only be open when you were entering and exiting it.

The only plus was since I didn't own the house they couldn't sue me about it. I'll admit I was a nightmare tenant. We had 4 adults, 2 children, 4 dogs, 2 cats, and a parrot in a 1600 square foot home.

The HOA here must be run by the same people! I have gotten notices for my garage being open, the Jeep being immobile (while parked in the garage) weeds, a BBQ pit being too close to the house, noise after 10 P.M. and performing vehicle maintenance both in my garage and in my driveway. The absolute best one yet was the weeds and the picture they sent showed me in the yard pulling weeds. First time I ever went to an HOA meeting was after getting that notice just so that I could show the picture to other pissed off people. LOL.
