Locking Hubs allow you to switch your 4WD vehicle to a 2WD vehicle when required. Since 4WD vehicles are generally ideal for off-road driving, they become power and fuel guzzlers in city and on-road driving conditions. Locking hubs, which are also known as free wheeling hubs, allow the front wheels and differential of a four-wheel drive vehicle to be disconnected from the drivetrain, turning the vehicle into a 2WD. The 4WD can be engaged again through a lever inside the vehicle.

When you drive a 4WD vehicle on a flat surface, the small differences between the speeds of the front and rear wheels will cause a torque to be applied across the transmission. This condition, known as "transmission wind-up", is detrimental to your transmission and drive-train. Installing locking hubs on your vehicle will improve your vehicle's efficiency and handling while driving on surfaces that do not require a lot of traction. If you're looking to convert your 4WD into a part-time 2WD vehicle, you have come to the right place. At Buy Auto Parts we stock a wide variety of locking hubs for every car make and model.
