    I have got a 91 ranger 4x4, with a dana 35 in front and I can't seem to keep the spindle nuts tight on it. I have got the Warn upgrade kit on the spindle nuts and it still backs off. At Primm while pre-running the hubs got so lose that the brake pad fell out of the caliper and the brakes stopped working, I ruined a caliper and ground a bunch of metal off from inside the rim. It's getting kind of old having this happen and i was wondering if any of you have got a fix for this. Thanks

    Thanks for the link, that kinda sounds like the setup that is on a linkpin frontend on a VW, luckily I have a friend who works at a jeep dealer so I should be able to get the parts new- thanks again
