Re: Brakes

Is he going to repack the wheel bearings for you too?

Sounds about right, price wise.

Re: Brakes

I thought it was a good price. But if I can do it myself it would save
150 that I dont have right now and yes he would repack the bearings

Re: Brakes

I can't say if it's too hard for you to do, I don't know your mechanical
skill level, that being said, it is a straightforward process, provided you
have the big socket for the bearing preload nut, and a pair of snap ring
pliers.

Whatever you do, good luck.

Re: Brakes

you will also need a pointed (like an ice pick or pointed knife to remove
the circle clip that sets in a groove inside the hub.
it is about the third thing to remove and is hard to see unless you know
where it is.
just put the point into the groove, between the ends of the circle clip(not
the right name) and pop one end out. then work the whole thing out."easy to
do, hard to find"
old john

ps:
here is a picture . the ring or clip is the uppermost right corner c clip or
ring.john

Go get a Haynes manual for 12 to 15 bucks and do it your self for half
the price of one side.
