    HELP!!

    title says it all, I have the stock Spicer hubs, and the end doesn't seem to seat to allow the snap ring to get on the stub shaft.

    suggestions?

    Hey Zakk...He is serious dude. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    How far from being able to get the ring on are you? Is it just a tiny little bit? If it is, stick a pry bar or 12" crecent or something behind the axle shaft u-joint and pry out. There's usally quite a bit of "slop".

    Why did ya have it apart in the first place?

    I do that first with the bearing's, then use a pistol grip grease gun, and fill er full! Then install the outer bearing. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
