The new one and repeat everything you did to put it back together using loctite on your bolts. Verry simple i hope this somewhat helps.

Interesting post.

I replaced the front hubs on a '04 Silverado 2500 HD this summer at the dairy I work for. It was basically the same thing, but there are 4 bolts mounting a very different hub assembly on. Cool to see the difference in the design.
