How do you remove rear axle bearings in a 88 GMC suburban 2wd w/8.5 rear???
Thanks in advanced
remove the alxe shafts and use a slide hammer
Yep, pop the seals out and use a slide hammer. You need the correct size wnd, otherwise itll break, and could be harder to get out.
Have fun those tend to get stuck in there pretty hard. Try to have a propane torch in case you need the heat.
after the first reply i went to autozone and rented the puller came home and popped it out (15 to 20 pulls) and installed the new bearing.the repair bearings are cool,it relocated the bearings on the axle and had a new seal already in it
Thanks again everyone
