Re: How To: Front Hub/Wheel Bearing Replacement

i put the axle nut on backwards and got the end of the axle shaft flush with the nut and hit it with a hammer and the hub and axle shaft came free of each other. i also know that it isnt the best way cause you risk fucking the threads up.

Re: How To: Front Hub/Wheel Bearing Replacement

I have a feeling this is a long shot but would a tacoma Wheel hub be similar enough to fit our trucks? I've been trying to find something similar to ours for manual hubs but I figured this seemed like a good place to ask, but after studying the pics I feel there's no shot

Re: How To: Front Hub/Wheel Bearing Replacement

Just recently pulled the hubs to change the rotors and the nut actually takes a 36mm socket. A lot of folks think 36 mm is too big because sometimes an impact socket has a somewhat sloppy fit. Used an air impact to remove the nuts and they were in perfect condition with no damage to the corners.

Just to confirm I checked with the FLAPS and there is no 35mm axle nut, they come in 30, 32, 34, 36mm sizes, etc depending on the axle.

I also used a dremel to machine a notch in the knuckle to make it easier for the ABS sensor wire to pass thru.

Hey this isn't my first rodeo. I was doing this shit when some of you were 4 wheelin in the sandbox at the playground. LOL

Some people like it tight.

Some like it sloppy.

Re: How To: Front Hub/Wheel Bearing Replacement

I seen through a google search that you can buy just the wheel bearings. Can you press out the old ones and just install new bearings instead of replacing the whole hub??

I was able to find a 6 point 35mm at advance auto the other day. Haven't test fitted it on the axle nut yet though.

Re: How To: Front Hub/Wheel Bearing Replacement

as long as you don't butcher it, I imagine they would. I was thinking about getting both also.

Re: How To: Front Hub/Wheel Bearing Replacement

I have the 35mm in the garage, when I head out in about an hour I'll pop off my center cap and try it quick.
