Front Wheel bearing removal question
Front passenger side wheel bearing is shot. Very loud hum when driving, jacked it up and it has play in it and you can hear the bearings when you spin the wheel. Took the lockout hubs off last night and saw water and some rust on some of the parts of the hub. Gasket was half disintegrated which allowed water to get in. (FYI, truck is new to me about 3 months ago and I am still going through everything and it's pretty obvious this guy didn't take that good care of it.) I still need to buy the repair manual for this truck. Is the Haynes manual the best for this or is there a better manual?
Anyway...looks like I need a special tool to get the "nut" unscrewed now from the spindle to get access to the bearings. Can I borrow this from Napa/ Auto Zone and if not, where can I buy it?
One more question, what are a couple of the best sites for parts for this truck?
