went for drive tonight on backroad locked the hubs in at the axels but the t-case stayed in 2high for some reason my right front brake gets really hot when i take it out of locke dposition and drive its fine but when i lock the hubs the brake caliper gets hot and the brakes start to make a grinding noise. Any Ideas?

no one has any ideas? tore the whole passenger side apart today right down to the axel shafts no noticble damage grease was still same color there was no metal shavings no scorching marks the hub works fine thought maybe it had piled up or something but its fine. Caliper is less then a week old brake lines are new master cylinder is new brake booster is new pads new only old part is the rotor.

i was thinking wheel bearing

i'm leaning towards bend or warped stub shaft or spindle bearings since it only happens when i engage the front axel shafts. hoping to have new parts tommorrow.

it won't have unit bearings if it's got locking hubs. How are the brakes on the other side? It also might help telling us a bit more about your truck, I know you've probably posted about it, but I'm a lazzy fucker.
