Dame sure could tell you about that....


I have replace a totall of 4 hub assemblies between 2 bonnies....

Thge last one that came off the drivers side of my 91 was blue.... And when you turned the bearing by hand it was not smooth at all... Also had a roaring noise that changed with the weight distribution...

Replaced the Hub and the problem was solved... Air tools make the job a lot easier though.... Good Luck

Air tools are key if available. They reduce the pain and sweat factor by 1/2

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
Hate to pull up a semi-old post here, but I searched and couldn't find it.

Question: Will this process be pretty much the same for a 2000 SSEi with TC and ABS?

Thanks.

Just about...the only difference is how the bearing is attached to the knuckle. Since you have aluminum knuckles you'll have 3 nuts and bolts holding it on, you'll have to hold the back while you loosed the front, and you might need a u-joint for the top bolt in the back.

Axle nut should be 34mm.

Cheers,
