Re: 2wd front wheel bearings

I'm looking forward (NOT) to doing the same thing.

I'm not sure of mileage to do this job - but if you are going to do pads - it would seem to me that this is the ideal time.

Search for removeing calipers do that then remove hub (unscrew hub nut) after removing cotter pin - pull off hub - when hub is lying on ground (or whatever) carefully punch out inner seal, lower bearing should fall out, clean old grease - regrease with factory spec. (I'm going to use syn.)

Instal brgs. TAP IN NEW SEAL VEWY,VEWY CAREFULY - instal on spindal - hook up caliper.

pay attention to wheel hub tightness - install cotter pin (new)

Sounds so gosh darn simple !!!!

Am I missing anything?
