wow only 300 hits ,id expect like 3000
see the noob section here.
you remove the bearing locking ring with a special tool, if you use a cold chisel , HOW DO you put it back?????
to the correct torque range. impossible and if not in range it fails fast.
you press out the old ones (any mach, shop, brake shop or suspension shop can do it)
you press in the new.
you set torque to spec. 123-180 ft/lbs
a real torque wrench.... is needed.
what is the hard part.?
i can not understand this...
I can get the entire hub lockers (is that a question?)
and I would assume the bearing behind the hub(wheel bearing) from a 1996 Geo tracker with good one on it...(what does this mean)?
will it work as a direct swap on my 1995 Geo tracker....
my guess is you confuse 96 GEO parts with 95 Sidekick
you do know that 96+_ GM /GEO trackers use there own , wheel bearing locking
ring , right? see my page on that, it shows the funny GM locker.
and how to change from GM to Sidekick flat ring.
only the locking bearing rings are unique, not the other parts
and the geo locking axle hubs some suzuki axle lockers will not fit the queer gm wheel bearing star lockers, it hits.
why not just ask direct questions, can i do this.
will this exact part off this car , will it fit , this car here,..
here is the GM bearing lock ring, if you have it, id get rid of it and use suzuki parts.
that is my opinion, i hate it.
some 96 did not have it. but 97 for sure does. GM/GEO made in CAMI
in 1998 some trackers were made in japan do to cami shut down,(refit) and have
non GM locks. the devil really is , in the details...................
Timken did a test on the bearing for out of range running , and it fails in 1000 miles or less. you believe it or not, but it's a fact. (crush bearing)
