    My 02 F250 has been acting strange lately. Driving down the road the truck will just pull hard to the left or right. Sometimes as I come out of a turn the truck will want to keep turning. I'm thinking the axle u joints are locked up.

    While I was looking into this I noticed my Warn Premium hubs were not locking. I took the left side lockout apart and it looks like it exploded. The right side lockout was still in tacked, but the snap ring on the back had popped off. I put the ring back on and when I cycled the lockout in my hand the snap ring popped off again.

    Any thoughts on this? What would cause the lockouts to **** out like this?

    I've ran the Warn premiums on a lot of trucks and never had an issue.

    Ujoints are the likely culprit

    For all the problems? Do you think the U joints caused the lockouts to shatter?

    Just to let everyone know, the problem the truck was having was the frozen front axel u joints.

    Thanks for the advice!
