Never heard of this. Obviously take out the hub assembly and have it warrantied, Curious, where did it break? And if you see any visual damage to the steering knuckle you should replace that also.

Thanks 4 answering. I steering knuckle looks fine. The new wheel hub broke right behind the shield. It's coming apart an you can see the bearings. Only drove it about 30 feet

You did have the axle nut torqued to like 135, 140 foot lbs right? And it is recommended to get the axle nut tight before putting it on the ground. Then check for proper torque on the nut.

It's the front an not 4 wheel drive. There is no axle nut

Ok I have ben looking at them so it just bolts on from the rear? Never the less sounds like a defective hub assembly. If I may suggest Mooge Wheel Hub assembly.

Thanks for all your help Rowefast
