    Wrong Bearing Cap Torque Specification

    Jeff has you on the right track davide. To answer your concern, it is imperative that the caps go back on exactly the way they came off. The caps are installed and machined in place. They are in...

    No need to have it assembled all the way. The important thing is to keep the scale 90 deg to the spindle and a fairly smooth pull. That photo is a grab of a different type of vehicle. I think it is a...

    An X sized socket will work. You can make your own tool with 2 sockets and/or washers and a piece of all-thread and two nuts. You need to be sure the seals push in square.
