Question about Cars & Trucks
Old hub goes in and out no problem new hub on drivers side went in no probem but passenger side new hub will not slide into place. Everything lines up on splines but will not slide in.
Been looking at your problem for awhile trying to figure it out. Count the number of spline teeth and see if they match grooves and count them.
Would say to try BOTH old hubs to see if Both slide on passenger side. May be oddball on passenger side and using both old hubs to test would reveal a difference. If both old hubs fit the passenger side, the answer is the remaining new hub is a bad casting.
Sometimes you get a rust buildup and you need to use Emery cloth to clean the old spline surface just as spindles can sometimes require polishing to accept new bearings. Your new spline parts are crisp and they may be trying to mesh with worn rounded edges.
There may be a problem with the shaft length if any retaining clip or washer were mispositioned and it would show up with the shaft being too short for the hub to slide into place.
Please rate my info.

I found a website that explaned that you can remove the hub and dust cover, inside is a spring which holds the hub out, removing this spring and replacing the rubber dust cover and hub will lock your front hubs in continious. as is done on later models, This has worked for my 98 4wd

the wheel bearing is the cause, it has a support bearing that hold the axle in place.

Testimonial: "thanks soo much, you were very helpful. i am very grateful, william."
SOURCE: Ford F150 4x4 Passenger side hub
The gear on the 4 wheel drive actuator and possibly the hub is stripped.
Remove wheel and brakes and take the four 18mm bolts out of the back and remove the cap on the end of the hub and take off a 12 mm nut. It should then come apart so you can see whats going on.
