Just ran into a problem with my stock lock out hub on my 88 fsb. The passenger side hub striped, or should say the plastic broke and just spins. When looking at it it appears that it is all one unit. Guy at the auto parts store tells me he "THINKS" that on the 88 that you have to repalce the whole unit that slides off when the lug nuts and tire are removed. Does anyone know if this is a fact? When looking at it I think he may be right. Any help would be great. Thanks! Q

Sounds like you have the "top hat" style hubs. I posted a thread here with pictures of my hubs when I had em off one day. I've looked at JBG and they want $275 (IIRC) per side for replacements. I think it would be cheaper to just swap front axles with a new unit that utilizes real hubs and go that route. Like welndmn said search for Hat style hub.
