I just picked up a 99 tracker with the 1.6. This is my first 2nd gen tracker. My question is will the manual hubs from the first gens work on 2nd gens. I was reading some stuff that said the 2nd gens had some changes to the front axle. Also would i be better off getting a mini spool for the rear or just welding it.

Yes. Hubs will work. I switched them out once.... The second gen uses "flanges" and a vacuum engaged front carrier. That vacuum is notorious to not work. If it was a vehicle I planned to dual purpose, I'd swap hubs and swap in front "center" section (26spline).

BTW some hardcore sami guys like those flanges to put on there solid front. Flanges are stronger then a hub, but never understood why to mount them on a sami...I always think the sami has plenty of other weak points, but idk.

If you are confident welder then weld it if you are not I would go mini spool.

Thanks. I read about the vaccum crap. More to add to my junk yard list.
