Re: Front wheel bearing replacement

I just did my front passenger side last weekend. I have to say that the instructions that "doublejz" gave are really good. I needed a 1/8" punch to remove the cottor pin and a puller to remove the hub from the knuckle.

Re: Front wheel bearing replacement

Great write up. I plan to replace mine soon and will use this as a guide. Is there any particular brand of hub/bearing to use or avoid?
