Thanks i had some practice over the summer when i re did the engine bay in my jetta.
Well i was hoping today was gonna be an easy one and i would just be able to slap the brakes on the drive side and be done till i get the U bolts, shims and re build the shaft for my IRO SYE.
This is how the day went down though i was starting to the brakes when i noticed that rust had built up under the flange that holds the axle in causing it to almost slit.
Luckily i had a good flange laying around, So i removed that and went to sisco auto parts and bought a timken bearing and seal and siscos pressed it on the shaft for me.
All said and done it cost me 100 bucks since i needed the bearing and seal and i had to buy a slide hammer to get the axle out but now it's all pretty.
