I read a few posts about having slack in the rear hubs I was just wondering if you could still buy new ones. Thanks

New hubs are not available. Best thing to do is to find a set off of a parts tractor or on eBay.

I believe some models of JD110 hubs are the same, just hafta cover over the green. If they are the same, which I have heard they are, then they sure are expensive..... $110 each! John Deere HUB M11041

Someone here was trying to figure out a way to take up the slop. I think it was firefytr.
I'm not sure how that panned out.

I was more looking for ideas on how to tighten them up myself. I was debating on the lines of either brass shim stock slipped in-between the hubs and splines (knocked on with a mallet) or maybe JB weld with a coating of of something on the splines so that it does not bond as much (maybe graphite?) The later could still require heat to remove... although, some stock ones do anyway.

Others suggested drilling and installing set screws.

If it's only a little play I've used Pematex Sleeve Retainer and also their Green Threadlocker with good results .

Some ATV manufacturers use silicone on splines to help tighten and keep moisture out.
