ok some body help me. I am replacing the front wheel bearings on my 84 cj7. I just got i the cj7 it looks stock. it is a base model. I have replaced the race and the bearing in an out. Driver side no problem. The passenger side will not pull up enough to get the clip on the end back on. Race are set all the way in. I have change to a different race even tried the old bearing back in it. I know the axle moves in and out some. just can not get it to move out enough. what am I doing wrong???? the stupid thing was on. I took it off now can not get it back on. I am at hit it with a big hammer just to feel better.LOL
I usually have to use a pry bar, it is a snug fit.

I am at work now will try some of this when I get home tonight.I have taken this off an on so much that I thing I could pack the bearings in under ten minute now. If every thing work out right.I bought this thing so I could teach my 13 year old son that you can do thing yours self. So I will have more ? for you guys down the road. He will drive it down the road so I am not going to crazy on lifts. got a 3 inch on it now. I thinks that is it on lifts. Brakes are next on the list. wish me luck. lol
