DIY Wheel Bearing replacement
Posted 13 September 2012 - 02:03 PM
Do I need other special tools? can I just take the whole knuckle assy off and have a shop press the bearings in?
Advice and or pics would be greatly appreciated.

Unless you've done a wheel bearing on another car before, I wouldnt recommend doing it yourself. It gets spendy when you start ruining bearings or the knuckle

I finally went to a wrecking yard, bought a hub unit for $75, installed that, and so far, so good. Yea, it is possible to buy junk at a junk yard, but if it is junk, they will guarantee for 30 days. In the future, I will go this route again, when I have a wheel bearing go bad.

nah, no need for rear brake shoe pics. Just do one side at a time. When you go to put together the first side, you pull off the rotor on the other side so you can visually look at the brake set up. Its rule #1 when it comes to brake shoes. Never tear down both sides, only one side til its back together
That's one of the things I like about the HubTamer tool method. No need to remove the brakes.
