Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

The front spindle to replace the front bearings? youre gonna need a 2 ft breaker bar with a 1/2 inch drive and a large socket. Im not sure of the socket size, but youre going to have to replace the spindle nuts anyway(they are designed to only be used once, do not reinstall the old one since it can loosen and potentially cause you to wreck) so you might as well order them first and when you do ask the parts store what size socket they require. The procedure is simple, remove the front wheels, remove the dome shaped cap(use a flat tip screwdriver) then remove the bolt. you will have to also remove the brake caliper and the caliper bracket, finally remove the front rotors and the spindle slides off (might have to pry it a little) reinstall everything, Im not sure of the torque spec on the TC, it is most likely between 250-300 ft lbs of torque, you can't really over torque the spindle by hand, or even by stepping on the handle of the breaker bar, so tighten it with everything you got. you should be able to do each side in 30-45 minutes.
