Hey all,

since i killed the drivers side wheel bearings and destroyed the manual hub i have been running one manual hub and one auto hub off a parts diff i bought.

i am looking at getting rid of the auto hub and switching it over to a manual so i can have both manuals again.

i was just looking online and come across a manual hub kit which includes everything to convert to a manual hub again.

Auto TO Manual Hubs Conversion KIT Nissan GQ Y61 Patrol ALL Models C W Braces | eBay

is this Kit on the expensive side or is it fairly reasonable priced?

For what you get the price is reasonable, but they aren't genuine hubs so they probably won't last long especially if you 4WD a fair bit.

I've seen a AVM heavy duty hub crack right open before, they're alot weaker than a GQ CV joint.
