rebuilding the front hubs? I got ol' standard Dana 30 front axle with 6 bolt locking hubs. Is there is rebuild kit for these (if there is I haven't found it yet)? Or is it easier to buy a prepackaged 5 bolt hub and swap it over to my 6 bolt?

Just buy a set of Milemarker Hubs and life will be good.
The Warn OEM hubs are junk....

I essentially rebuilt my OEM hubs last year but had to buy most of the parts separately. I got most of what I needed from Torque King at pretty reasonable prices.

ďOr is it easier to buy a prepackaged 5 bolt hub and swap it over to my 6 bolt?Ē

You canít put a 5 bolt locking hub on a 6 bolt hub assembly. You will need the older and better 6 bolt locking hub. Bolts have a tendency to loosen on either style, but there are ways to address this issue.

My bad, let me be more clear on the "swap". As my research seems to indicate the internal parts are all the same on certain hubs can be gutted and used in my 6 bolt hubs. At this point, I most likely will buy the MM and either use 'em as is or gut 'em and use my original hubs.
