1978 CJ5 front hub removal

Went through some pretty deep water this weekend. Need to repack bearings. Anybody know a good site that shows removal and installation and any special tools required? Also, what are other areas other than differentials, XMSN, transfer case I should check for water?

Thanks.

You must be new to four wheel drive machines if you are unable to repair your leaking hub. Sounds like you need to keep it out of waste deep water. Good luck.

wheel bearings pull the hubs - there might be a snap ring on the end of the axel - the nuts you can use a chisel to remove the 1st nut the plate behind it is bent to fit the flats on the nut must be bent back to allow the nut to turn free - 2nd nut same as 1st - pull hub and rotor off -rear -tranny - tc drain add new oil
