  • front disc removal manual hubs

    Hey fellas, any quick tips for front disc removal? specicially, any tricks for the snap rings? anyone know the size of the hub lock nut? i have to rent or by one. i know they can be very tight, any tips for breaking it free? i have to do the axle joints, might as well turn or replace rotors as need too. what should i look for in the hubs as far a wear? Grease? yeah, lots of ifs, and i haven't started yet, just trying to get a grip on what i may be in for. thanks

    You should have no problem removing the Wheel Bearing nuts, they are not usually that tight. You will be looking for a Dana 44 4 prong socket (HUB TOOL) to remove them.



    Cheaper to buy rotors than to have them turned, I think they are about 22.00 new, each. Here is a Dana 44 Diagram

        Buy the locknut tool. It's less than $15 at all the parts stores, with maybe the exception of NAPA, where it might be $20. <g>

              Rotors are cheap, but after the new rotor is pressed (lug bolts)
              on the hub it is recmended that they be given a
              light turning to true them up in referance to the
              hub.

              So it is still cheaper to turn your currnet rotors
              if they have plenty of meat on them.

                I drive the studs out drop a new rotor on, drive the studs back in..............never a problem.

                      I always replace the muffler bearings when refilling the blinker fluid.

                          ok, finally got around to this job today, removed the locking hub cover, one inner snap ring and have this



                          which doesn't seem to jive with this socket i got
                          (carquest, 14 bucks, fyi)



                          looks like a six point locknut, here's the rough diamiter



                          so, do i return this socket and get a six-popint one, or will i need the four point one deeper in there? I am a bit confused. this ought to be a stock 85 axle, although i keep thinking about the PO saying "it has a 'plow' suspension on the front". Any thoughts before the parts store closes for the weekend? Thanks

                            You need to get one more retainer ring out. Then put a couple of the allen screws back in and snap a couple pair of visegrips on to the allen screws and pull that hub out. Then you will get to the wheel bearing lock nuts
