Knuckle Rebuild...
« on: Nov 22, 2006, 03:39:19 PM »
Hey you guys... I just got my front end pulled apart to install some new gears in the axle... and I decided to rebuild the knuckles, but the only problem is that I don't exactly know how to. I got a rebuild kit without the wheel bearings and I have the hub taken off and I have my axle shafts out, but I just dont know how or what to replace, I am kind of a newbie when it comes to this stuff. I was just wondering if anyone had some kind of instructions or anything... I have looked around and I have only found how to get to the axle shafts which I am already at that point. Anyways sorry if this is a really task to do I am just curious and I want to do it right. Thanks Pete

don't know if this helps but here you go.  and replace everything that comes with the kit.  keep all bearings as spares.

replace all felts, seals, gaskets, hub rebuild (gaskets), and bearings. I would recommend OEM ONLY (especially for bearings, USE ONLY Koyo or NGK japanese bearings) Also check the condition of shims
