Default front wheel bearing

Ordered my front wheel bearing. I am pretty certain it is the left one. I will swap it out on Monday.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Here's hoping you don't have a major battle getting it out of the Knuckle - best of luck!

Default Re: front wheel bearing

Just a head's up...I had to beat the crap out of my old one to break it free of the knuckle assembly. Steel against cast aluminum make VERY good friends. One I beat it out of there with a sledge hammer, I used a die grinder with brass wheel to clean out the calcium build-up, and then slathered it all with never-seize before assembling.

I'm going to be changing one of my front bearings (again, grr), and I'm hoping it doesn't take an hour of hammer abuse to separate them.

Got mine done. I took the whole assembly off and pounded it out with a brass hammer, wasnt too bad. I also replaced the ball joint as long as I had everything off.
