95 F150 4X4 pulling

I have 95 4x4 with manual locking hubs when I put it in 4wd the truck
started pulling hard to the right. I tried unlocking and locking the
hubs again but it continued to pull. Once I took the truck out of 4wd
the truck stopped pulling but it did seem to hesitate some. When I
unlocked the hubs and drove the truck was perfect no pulling? I
dropped the truck off this morning to get looked at does anyone have
any idea what it could be and was the cost I am looking at?

Thanks,
Pat

Are you sure both hubs were locked? Were you on dry pavement when you
shifted to 4wd?

Yes I was in my garage when I locked the hubs and then put it in 4wd to
drive in the snow.

Sounds like one of your hubs (left one) wasn't locked.

Re: 95 F150 4X4 pulling

If you were driving in the snow and both hubs were in the locked position
(did you visually check?), if one side gets more traction than the other, it
will pull to that side.

Re: 95 F150 4X4 pulling

Yes I checked they were both in the locked position. It even pulls when it
is on a smooth dry surface. Could it be that the left hub isn't locking
therefore making it pull to the right?

Re: 95 F150 4X4 pulling

Possibly, though if one hub is unlocked, the differential would absorb the
torque difference, unless you have a limited slip or locking diff. With the
hubs locked, try rotating the axle U joint in the steering knuckle... if you
can rotate it when the hub is in the locked position, you need a new hub
lock.
