I will throw this in...

If you get a Timkin( spelling ) from autozone, it should come with a new O-Ring seal and new axle nut as well...

Depending on where you are, coaxing the Axle out of the Hub might be a PITA.... I live here in Florida, so All I usually do is screw the old axle nut on to cover the top / threads of the axle as to not do any damage, and pound the axle a bit untill it moves, I then remove the nut, remove the 3, T55 hub to knuckle bolts and then remove the hub...

If there is a lot of salt where you live, sometimes removing the axle from the hub can get interesting..

Good Luck

Oh, and you have to have the car in Nuetral to turn the wheel flange, So make sure to set the parking brake.

Thanks guys, did the replacement last night and everything went relatively smoothly. The only difficulty was the previous assemble separated and I needed to pry the backing section with connector out. I picked mine up for $119 Canadian at a local parts store.

Great to hear. Sounds like it was pretty smooth. As they intended it to be. Life is so good where you don't have to pack a bearing or get all greasy changing one out.

I was just wondering how you guys came up with the conclusion that your wheel bearing needed to be replaced, I have a 92 bonne and when i shift the cars wheight onto the left front i get a "wa wa wa wa" then i deo the opposite, shifting the weight onto the right front i get no noise....is this a symptom of a wheel bearing going slowly,

all this aside if you leave a bad wheel bearing alone, what will the outcome be when one goes bad? fragging, hot hot heat, wheel seize, or wheel goes AWOL at 80 MPH?

thanks guys I saved this page on my favorites list when i need to do mine,

nickyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Wheel bearings usually show up when you are turning. One side makes a noise one way and the other side the other way. If you have one going bad and ignore it, imaging whatever scenario you want...anything can happen

As needed. They can lock up. When suspension parts fail the ride is not fun. I've got a bump on my ribs from a ball joint.
