    It would be best to get a Manual for your Vehicle at your local parts store and see an Exploded View of Automatic Locking Hub Assembly. There are many components in Automatic Hubs that need to be assembled in a certain order.

    after comparing both sides, and cleaning noticed lil tabs on hub missing on one side, that side would not lock while other did, so went back to my 92 parts truck and stole lockers off and replaced. lot simpler to tell if they work lol
