So, who all has.................

Changed the front hub seal thats on the outside of the stub shaft just inboard from the hub bearing assembly? Im about to change mine along with the hub bearing assembly and figured Id ask if anyone has any pointers I may not be aware of already. I found this writeup that seems to be good...

here is a simple one... when assembling everything back together make sure you get the brake dust shield on right... it sucks to have to pull it back apart...

Well I changed the bearing and seals out today. A word of advice,..... Just cough up the money for the ford dust seal cuz the napa fit like crap and was a headache. Otherwise went well, and now I dont have to drive around with my hubs locked to prevent the horrible vibration. Looks like my spindle bearing failed from water getting into it after the hub seal failed or from the bearing wearing and then causing the seal to fail and allowing water to get in cuz it was all dried up with rust in there.

To hell with putting it on backwards, I left the some beach off altogether! I really just wanted practice removing/installing the unit hub assembly... yeah, that's my story.

A guy on another forum just took a saw and cut it off once he figured it out...
