Wheel bearings are somewhat expensive to replace if they aren't worn out yet...I wouldn't replace unless you have symptoms of worn out wheel bearings.

That's good news. I think my wheel bearings are fine because the truck sounds fine when it's rolling straight. I just have noise & clunking when turning slowly. How soon should I fix this (the u-joints or CV axles)? I drive about 100 miles a week (mostly city, some highway), and was thinking of doing the repairs in a few weeks. Will I get stranded if they break? (they've been getting noiser each day, it seems).

Might have been after the core return. I just did both fronts on a WJ for $60 a side after core..

The 51.52 price is for a reman axle. Just as good as a new one, and local. My store always has my shafts in stock. You wouldn't have any problems with that.

By the way, I spoke with the counter jockey at my local Napa on the warranty. If the boot so much as gets a pinhole and starts to leak, you're entitled to a new shaft. Very good warranty.

For the BIG NUT use a 3/4 impact! comes off like butta'

One thing i find useful to do with my calipers to get them out of the way is to put the wheel under the slider and then slide it up so you can rest the caliper on it also. Works like a charm

Actually, any impact will do the trick. I've used my el-cheapo Harbor Freight 12v impact, and I've used my 1/2" drive air impact. the 12v takes just a smidge longer
