Re: KE Laser front wheel bearing preload
i tried to replace the front right handside wheel bearingon my ke laser but ran into trouble with the preload on the bearing. i had to get my bro to fit the bearing for me using a press to get the right preload on it. with the spacers he also had to buy a different sized spacer from ford because using the old spacer when he put the load on the bearing it was too tight so he had to get the next size up spacer to give the cup and the cone the right tolerance so it could spin freely thankfully that fixed the problem.
IF IT AIN'T BIG ENOUGH STROKE IT.
