@  Fast86GN : (04 March 2019 - 07:05 PM)

I don't think it would that loud probably depends on the mufflers used?

Hello everyone! Its been a long time!. Looking to get back into the game. Anyone have a GS on the east coast they wish to part with?

Still have a Regal GS project that has taken way too long to build, and it's nowhere near done.

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.
