    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

    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.

    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
