Well got the other radius arm bushing installed - then started to tear into the brakes.
So I started on the LH side - the same side where the hub does not lock in. It turns fine, everything seems fine from the outside, but doesn't lock in.
Were factory manual hubs Warn hubs? Did all electronic shift 4WD models in '95 have auto hubs originally?
Got the hub cap off - missing two screws of course - and this spring was resting inside the hub. I'm guessing it's supposed to be that way.
The PO took all this apart to install new ball joints (verified they are new and Moog) and didn't bother to clean the old grease out and repack the bearings...
Jeez, talking about dirty
Outer wheel bearing came REALLY easy - as in it basically fell out before I ever started pulling the rotor off the spindle. But the spindle nuts weren't overly loose I don't think. Good news that number matches up to the TIMKEN SET45 I ordered.
Out spindle nut - both sides
Inner spindle nut - notice no 'nub' or lock tab - shouldn't it have a piece that locks into the hub washer?
Outer axle u-joints seem in great shape. May clean them off - debating whether I should go ahead and replace them since I have them on hand.
So apparently someone got the 12 point 6mm bolt off for the ABS sensor but either forgot it or destroyed it removing it - so no bolt holding the sensor in and the end of the sensor looks chewed to hell
Hammer and brass drift made short work of the wheel studs and the drove the ABS tone ring out as well
Need to order ABS sensor might go ahead and do hubs too.
