there a trick to changing wheel barings?
its just as easy to go buy a new knuckle.
I agree just press the new bearings in and out and your done. Save the extra money and just buy an extra set of bearingsso then why spend twice the money when it takes 5 minutes to change the bearing, i don't see the point on spending an extra 25 dollars a side for 5 min of work.
No Prob man it's just not the way I would do it because I have acsees to everyting I need to do the job at work . But why would you buy a ball joint as well . No need to change the ball joint when doing a wheel bearingI have replaced bearings myself too, but you DO get your moneys worth buy getting a loaded knuckle. If you buy the knuckle it WILL come with bearings and seals already installed AND the lower ball joint installed. At my dealership it was 60 for just bearings and seals, the loaded knuckle was 74. Just think about it, if bought seperatly, 50~60 for bearings and seals, then 20 for ball joint and then your time putting it on. From now on I am just buying loaded knuckles.
