Who knows, people use apps nowadays. Not to many youngins use urls.

@  alemstrom : (08 October 2018 - 12:12 AM)

What's poppin! We don't know what to do to liven up the website!

@  steveyjr1982 : (01 October 2018 - 09:58 PM)

The majority of people on fb are annoying.

@  ejguillot : (21 September 2018 - 03:03 PM)

Agreed. I'd rather pay money to keep this site going than be on Facebook and having everything on there be used to make a buck for Zuck and company.

@  Vicious6 : (20 September 2018 - 01:48 PM)

We need to get this place moving again! Post link to this site on every social media site you know! Been around too long and we can't let it go down..........

@  Vicious6 : (20 September 2018 - 01:08 PM)

Seems everyone is too stressed to be online and worried about where their next meal is coming from! Rough times right now!

@  ejguillot : (14 September 2018 - 01:15 AM)

Still dead in here. Get off Facebook!

@  tpivette : (02 August 2018 - 01:08 AM)

Need to replace a rear hub bearing on my 2000 GS. I've done more fronts that I can count, but this is the first rear.  Seems simple enough, is there anything I need to do with the parking brake or shoes when replacing the hub in the rear?

Well first make sure the parking brake is off. Remove caliper, bracket and rotor. Parking brake shoes won't fit over the hub assembly so you need to work around it. When the bearing separates from the knuckle, the backing plate will most likely come with the bearing. Separate backing plate from bearing and reverse steps to install.

Great, thanks.  Was just curious if I had to remove the shoes or disconnect the cable.  Sounds like I can work around it.  Thanks.

Looking forward to that.  Makes sense since the the knuckle is aluminum and hub is steel.  It's original with 190k on it, should be fun getting it off...

I had one similar to that on the front of my Olds Aurora.  The bearing released from the knuckle, but the axle would not release from the bearing.  The fire wrench was the last resort:

Used some anti-seize on my surfaces the last time I did it. We'll see if it helped. Have to do mine soon as well.

My '03 LS is sporting three of the original bearings at 155k miles. A BIG difference from the '04 GS which had to have them all replaced before 90k miles, and now possibly again at 165k.

 

I took the opportunity to adjust the parking brake. Kind of fiddly mechanism overall, but ultimately it's easy to figure out.

I've done plenty of fronts and always use anti-seize or bearing grease on the axle splines, comes apart easily next time around.  Got the new hub today and going to replace this weekend.
