I searched and could not find a definite answer. Im trying to replace both my rear wheel bearings (get this creaking noise) and as i said not sure what size to get and what parts. Its not leaking so i donít think i need a seal and can just get the bearings and retaining ring. I know you have to drill/pry the old ones off and get the new ones pressed
Did you install new bearings and was this the problem? I've got the same diff and have a slow speed rear wheel creak, and my outer seal and axle tube is wet with diff fluid.
Hey, I just got the wheel bearings in today. I'm pulling the axel tomorrow night and getting them pressed and reinstalled Thursday morning so ill let you know Thursday night. If it still makes the noise im thinking the u-joint(which was also suggested)
Update: Bearings wont be pressed until "maybe" today, but most likely tomorrow (saturday). The axle shafts came out very easy and only took 10 mins to remove both and another 40 to remove the old bearings (drill and chisel method)
Update #2: the shop that was supposed to press my bearings called and said they aren't supposed to be pressed on the shaft but hammered into the axle. Clearly they have no idea what there doing so I picked them up and am bringing them to another forum members garage Tuesday AM so official update will be Tuesday PM. Sorry for the delay. This is annoying
