    I have difficulty seeing how the free wheel hubs on the rear axle of a 6x6 could have any effect on tyre scrubbing - the reason the tyres scrub is that they are being dragged sideways on corners, not because they are turning the diff and prop shaft. But I suppose the same factors are at play!
    I fitted the FWH to the rear axle of my 6x6 not to stop scrubbing but to stop wear on the driveshaft, double cardon joint thing and rear diff. They are all like new still

    Does anyone know where I can source a replacement for one of the three screws ? They look a but special with the last few millimetres unthreaded and smaller diameter.

    Thanks

    I think they had thread right to the end or at least mine did. You can see them
    In the below picture.
    Probably the ends of yours are worn

    Just used high melting point bearing grease.
