either that or tear them down and make sure you put everything back together right. Of course if everything was put together right but the hub is dammaged you'd need to replace it anyway. I suppose it just depends on how much time you have v.s. how much money you have.

it was hard to turn before the rebuild i used to stuggle with it now it just wont turn from free to lock i guess the best thing is to get some avm hubs and go from there.

I would have to repeat the suggestion from above...
Tear them down, clean, lube and rebuild.
The Suzuki locking hubs are really very strong for the load a Zook puts on them. Give them another chance.

I'd agree with those that say tear them down and take a look. You say 4wd is working with the hub in the "free" position? Sounds like you might have got the locking cam in the wrong position, when you put them back on. They really are a pretty simple part and worth taking a closer look at, before you toss them out.
