Dyna Trac makes the kit to fix the problem just have to get out and manually lock the hubs but saves some fuel and money if ur not changing them all the time.

Are you torque them properly? I put a jobber one in on my passanger side 50ish K ago and no problems but a buddy told me that if there not torgued properly the can die fast. Fact or fiction I don't know but I torgued mine as per instrucions and have had no problems.
