2003 Silverado 1500 front hub issues

Question

Is the front hubs the same on 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive ? What I'm trying to do is my 4 wheel drive is broke front rear is blown up just wondering if the two wheel drive hub and four-wheel drive hub will fit the same ?

They should be the same, EXCEPT the 2wd version may not have the center machined out to accept the CV shaft from the front diff.  You need to make sure the assembly you buy has the splined hole for the CV shaft to go into...

 

However, I am going by anecdotal posts that they are the same hubs except for the center part.  Personally, I would just get hubs marked as 4wd from rockauto.
