It's O.K, your ring gear is turning as long as you have your hubs locked. so YES you DO get lubrication. The spider gears only turn when the vehicle is making a turn to allow wheels to turn at different speeds.
The Jeep axle disconnect system is proof that it doesn't hurt the gears. One front wheel is always connected to the diff even when in 2wd.Originally posted by stihl036:

Hey my 79 scout has auto locking hubs so I don't think it's cause they wear faster.Originally posted by BlackShadow:
Since this is a topic about locking hubs. I will ask a question. I have a 93 Nissan truck. With auto-locking hubs. Is there somthing better about manuel locking hubs thats better, or does it matter?
The next question is which year of fords?Originally posted by xjtank:
Ford advises that you shouldn't drive for mor e than 50Km with the hubs locked in and not being in 4wd according to the manual.
