    Repack? If you have to tear it down that far, why not replace?
    I'd offer to help, but I need to get mine done so I can go. Friggin' steering gear now /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Best tip I can give you to save time and mess is to buy one of the cone style wheel bearing packing deals and a tube of high temp wheel bearing grease for your grease gun. Makes it very easy to pack a new set of bearings in about 30 seconds.

    Next thing you need to know is after installing your wheel bearings drive it down the block and back then re-torque the spanner nuts that hold the wheel bearings (you only have to jack up one side at a time and remove the lockout, not the wheel/tire). They like to loosen up after the grease is warmed up the first time.
