So I get out the 36 mm socket, bust loose the hub/stb axle nut, jack
it up, pull the wheel, then the pull the brake drum and shoes. Then
pull the outer bearing... it's bad so it comes out easy. Then I pull
the brake backing plate, pull loose the outer CV joint, wire it up
being careful not to keep it at a 20 degree or less angle. Then I
start the war with the inner wheel bearing. It's being a bear. Cant
drive it out, can't cuss it out. Guess what, I forgot to pull the
snap ring out. I got my snap ring pliers out when I was pulling
tools and everything. It was just too hot to think. I thought you
would all enjoy it.
By if you are EVER gonna work on those CV joints go ahead and start
looking for an 8mm star tool today. They are kinda like Torx but it
has 10 points instead of 6. I had to go to four stores before I
I hope this post isn't a bore.
