    Called Inland truck parts, they said all they have is a 87 GM spindle for a corp 10 bolt. Do you guys know if that will be the same spindle for a 90 10 bolt??

    I dont think they changed anything on the 10 bolts other than the splines on the axleshafts.

    Well, I have since found some. Now all I need to know is what are the torque specs for the 6 nuts that hold these spindles on. 75lb?? P.S. I hate packing bearings by hand.

    OOps!! I went ahead and torqued'em to 75lbs. Ya'll think this is to much. So I back off and re-torque or leave them the way they are?

    P.S. Didn't have a part #. Got them from 2 different junk yards. And I dont see any #'s stamped on them anywhere. ALso I need to get that damn needle bearing outta there. Any ideas?

    A recovery strap [​IMG]that's a good one[​IMG]. Any way, to get the needle bearing out, since you're replacing it anyway right?, Big hammer and screwdriver[​IMG]!

    Well, I took the old wheel bearings, spindle nuts, and axle and made sure they where the same size and all. Plus I saw both front ends that they came off of. They where GM 10 bolts same as mine. They are already on adn fit just fine. Had to take a little rust off one though. Now it looks like my freaking steering knuckle joints are worn. I still have vertical play with both wheels. :(
    Anybody changed these out at home before???
