The Putty work is going on and it takes more time.

I got the Lamda free wheeling hub. But my mechanic don't know how to fit that. So I have to do it myself. I am not able to get a clear picture of the installation from the Fitting Instructions from Lamda.

in the Instructions 4th point says "INSERT CIRCLIP on axle shaft" Do we have to buy new sirclip for that or it will be there inside the OEM front hub ?? Please help me

What are those align Marks (instruction no 7)? is they are inside the cover assembly ?

hi, sreej
The instruction no 7: By rotating the knob you will pull back the flange where axle goes in. now it is easier to fit the free wheeling hub. Once it is fixed turn clock wise direction, jack up the wheel rotate it. You will hear click sound and wheel locks
this conform it works well

Why is everyone going in for a matt finish nowadays on their Jeeps? It's damn difficult to clean and remove mud and if you have scratches (inevitable) then that mud will be impossible to remove from there.
