  • 89' K5 Blazer converting to manual hubs?

    The auto locking hubs no longer work on my 89 k5 took them apart cleaned them re greased them and they still will not work so I am just going to convert to manual hubs, But my question is what all am I going to need converting the hubs from auto to manual? I have tried searching and never could find what I was looking for :read:

      Pull the auto **** out of there and shove manuals in back in. Done.

        Just buy a set of the manual hubs, take off automatic crap, put manual in, and you're done. Nothing to it.

            Allen key and a pick. Maybe a pair of snap ring pliers, I never put the snap ring on the axle but some people do.

                        That would be the steering column originally in the blazer.

                          :word: the steering column is stock and the heat/ac needs to be rewired which I will get around to eventually but as of right now not too worried about it, all of the guages work besides the speedometer/odometer just needs the cable to work the dash is my favorite mod to the k5 :read:
