    Whats up? I'm new here and need a little help... I got a 97 taco with rancho 5000's, 17's in BFG Mud's. I just recently did a brake job(new rotors and pads) stops on a dime, just has this weird grinding noise coming from the front region of the truck. The noise seems to be the loudest when going 25MPH or slower, mainly when I'm coming to a stop the grind gets louder. As I was checking the front right side, I found out my front locker is seized in the unlock position....:( If anybody has any ideas or think them can help me diagnose my problems I'd greatly apperciate it. Thanks for your time and comments.

    I would stop driving it immediately, I'm assuming that you have manual hubs, you need to take off the outer cover of the hub & see if theres any grease in it, if not grease it up,replace cover & try to turn your hub, if its still stuck gently roll your truck back & forth a couple of times , usually this will allow the hub to "free spool". If you are sure you did the brakes right the grinding may be related to the hub malfunction, I don't have enough info to give a decent answer, so anymore info you have would help... good luck...:cool:
