the tool that is used to put the hubs back together?
Do you mean the deep bearing retainer socket?
Any auto parts store has them, about 10-15 bucks.
yep, the one with the 4 prongs, thanks
You can get the 4 prong hub socet at about any parts store. Mine was like $20. At Autozone, they dont carry one for a gm 10 bolt front axle. I got mine from them for a ford D44 front axle and its the same thing.
so thats the one i have to get?
Just tell them what you have. I have several different ones each one fits a variety of axles of different brands of trucks.
you need this to pull axle shafts (front) right?
LOL, that's Autozone for ya.
Dana 44's and 10-bolts have the same outers, so the same hub socket would work on both
Yup. Remove locking hub, caliper, undo Magic Hub Nuts with the Magic Hub Tool, and remove rotor/hub assy and spindle and bearings and such.
Assembly is the reverse of removal, with the addition of swearing at losing bolts, etc.
can`t leave that part out now can we
whoa whoa wtf is a magic hub tool? or are you just bein a smartass? lol
Yup, that's me.
'Sides, if *you* have magic nuts, keep 'em to yourself and girlfriend/wife ... *I* want nuthin' to do with them
well, then again.....maybe you do
My nuts belong to my wife and nobody else thankaverramuch.
thats not my fault, now is it?
okay now that we know where to get the hub socket, where in the world do we get the adjuster socket for the sleeve on the upper ball-joint???
were not gonna talk about that. i think i should go to bed now
Napa carries them. Owatanna Tool Corp 7080:
Snap-on has them, etc etc etc. Use that Search button and see my previous posts.
