on my 1987 bronco it has the lrack plastic warn hubs and on both sides if u grab the hubs with ur hands there is a little bit of play in them,i already tried to tighte them,took them apart and they look ok,any ideas why they are loose

they have lil washrs that go behind the hub to press them outwards.. mine did that aswell iu just doubled up on washrs.. now there nice N tight..
take the big clip out then the centr clip( middle of the hub) then there should b a washr that has grooves for the splines , followd witha real thin washr.. just add another thin washr.. it will fix ur problem..[cheers]

ok cool why do the hubs do that are the jus worn out or what?

not entirely sure.. mayb just over time it creates that lil bit of play from the seals not being so fat anymore... or jsut the moving parts in the hub assembly eventually makes a lil room foritself..[cheers]
mine do it on my bronco right now real bad... same year too.. my 96 is allgood now tho due to the washrs..goodluck
