Re: Rear wheel bearings

You should check the carrier bearings and pilot shaft bearing. Also give the u-joints a good inspection.

I love it when people do things right
Unfortunetly I dont always do that lol

Re: Rear wheel bearings

Now that I looked a little closer I see this is a front wheel drive. Did you replace the races with the bearings or just the bearings? You may want to check the front bearings and axle joints. Never mind the carrier and pinion bearings. Its not a rear wheel drive.

All the XE and XF stuff kind of throws me me every now and then lol.

Re: Rear wheel bearings

Be sure and replace the crush sleeve behind the bearing and torque it down. You can usually get by using the old one buts its not a real good idea. Check the u-joints for any slop. That will also creat a lot of noise.

Re: Rear wheel bearings

EF XR8 is a Falcon rear wheel drive with a V8 based on the mustang 5.0L of the early 90s. It has a live axle so your 1st comments were correct sand1.
