    I’ve got a 2018 Chevy that I think needs rear possibly is there a heavy duty option for wheel bearings or is OEM the only option got a quote anywhere from 1200 to 1500 4 x 4 parts out of Dallas Texas. I’m thinking about just replacing the front and rear and getting it done all at once that’s what that price reflects just got a new 0% credit card for 18 months hello debt my old friend.

    I just Got finished replacing both front wheel hubs on a 2008 Silverado 4X4. When I took the brake caliper off the stainless steal disk guides was missing. I guess whoever installed new disk pads last just left it out.

    People, pay a mechanic to inspect your used car before you buy it, they will tell you to run a way from a POS. Used car dealers have a way of putting lipstick on a pig. You need someone that has worked on the pigs and knows what’s under the lipstick. Nice video in more ways than the diagnostics. Always enjoy my SMA.

    yeah had to change mine twice already. Thanks for the Timkin tip !

    If everything went "book perfect" it wouldn't be nearly as interesting. Thanks for the great video! For those of us who always seem to find that "Murphy" has had gotten in the way… this was perfect!! Thank you!!!

    lol i guess thats why you should use impact rated torx bits on impact guns😂

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bud DaVanon says:

    Eric, sockets are brand names nut and bolt tools, but are also bearing installers, race installers, centering devices, extension for leverage tools, and when they wear out you grind them for hole punches,!! lol, sorry 46 yrs as a master mechanic, just don't tell the trade schools ( if there are any left )…..Budman….. PS love your shows …reminds me of my past !!!

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars alaska guy says:

    Easiest way I found was to remove the caliper get the rotor loose then place a peice of scrap 2×4 between the spindle and the rotor then slap on the lug nuts and tighten them.

    Gosh darn cell phones I should’ve proofread I meant to say you brought a smile To my face not she brought a smile to my face

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Appel says:

    Just subscribed I retired an experimental A mechanic senior from Ford motor and of all the YouTube videos that I have seen yours made me wish I could’ve had you on my team. I’ve had a lot of master mechanics work for me but not all of them have a common sense streetsmart it’s whatever you wanna call it. But she brought a smile to my face today keep up the good work yeah I’ll be watching!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nighthawke70 says:

    Um, Eric? What is a booby trap? A friend of mind told me he did that to his tool chest to keep tools in it….

    I guess he didn't like the idea of me borrowing his sockets to seat boots.

    Why would you lubricate the part that doesn't move but NOT lubricate the part that does?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars If it ain't broke, Fix it says:

    Nice video. Have you ever had a caliper pin shoot out like a bullet when you torched it? 😂

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars matt angelo says:

    Ha "flat rate guys down there gotta be millionaires" I never thought of it like that. The rare time you buy a Southern car and realize how easy everything comes apart. Like a 15 year old new truck

    Always enjoy your jobs whatever your doing, I pick up a lot of Ideas how to do things the easy way

    Hey Eric – I have to torque hub bearing bolts to 96 ft-lbs – they are 13mm bolts – that much torque is distorting my impact socket – feel like I'm going to strip threads… I may have got too much anti-seize on the bolts…

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BlackManOps says:

    Those stainless slide plates won't rust, but they do pit. I lube them regardless of the dust issue just to add that protective layer. Have no idea if it helps, but it makes me feel like its a job well done.

    Steve from Blues Clues became a mechanic?!?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keeping Up says:

    No, you can't order wheel bearings from Wearever. They only make brakes.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 1000km/week says:

    Good old rust belt. You mechanics should get paid a 20% more on your allotted time to fix vehicles in the rust belt.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brent Owen says:

    I've found the air hammer with chisel works well on the axle nut cap. Minimum deforming.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rich Tulko says:

    Amazing video. Thank you for all your tips and tricks. Your thorough instructions are priceless and second to none. But most importantly thank you for not editing down the video. 1. You made me realize I’m not the only one with bad luck when it comes to working on a vehicle. 2. You show how to deal with reality aka “can this job go any f***ing worse!”

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Joyce says:

    I had both of the piston pushers at the shop I retired from and they are great

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Joyce says:

    I used to clean the holes for the pins with gun barrel cleaning wads. Spray with some brake clean and go to town. Use variable speed drill Works great.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rye Rob says:

    Oh i almost forgot to mention….I own stock in WD40 and CRC penetrating fluids, by the way those generation 1/2 tons are nothing like the OBS GM's in the heavy 3/4 ton and 1 ton front hubs…everything is 3 times the size and weight and you have to knock out the old wheel studs and reseat them on the new hubs…lol so we love those as we get to pull out the torches too! yep air hammer and chisel bits come in handy…Remember if you can do it, I dont want to do it!
    also I should mention, on the older GM's…now is the time to order the dust/backing plates for the wheel/hub assembly….so you can replace them while doing the hub/bearing sets…the dust/backing plates sometimes rust completely away and you wouldn't know it existed. And of course do the brake maintenance now too…pads/rotors/pins/calipers

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rye Rob says:

    its been a while since I've posted any comments….but lol I've done so darn many GM wheel bearings and Cv joint replacements over the years…you help me with my rust/salt interventions. I'm a snow/ice removal service owner and have only owned 2 Fords over the years, as many as 25 GM's…glutton for punishment?

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Henry Thompson says:

    Heres the problem Eric. Out West, wheel bearings don't go bad. I am 79 yrs old, have owned dozens of cars, never replaced a wheel bearing. You would starve out here!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Mefford says:

    That’s what I need is a bench grinder

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Mefford says:

    If that one is that bad the other one is going to be if it hasn’t already been done yet .

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chas Boomer says:

    That back plate is metal stamping made with a punch and die set in a punch press. That birr is caused from a sheared punch and die that needs sharpened.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tech Ninja says:

    You know some people wonder what you pay for when you have a shop do these jobs. Just watch and you'll see it's not wham bam thank you mame all done in 15 minutes. My wife always ask me why did replacing the brakes yourself take so long and I'm like ask most mechanics and they'll tell you why. I'm just as thorough as you are when I do these jobs on my own. You learn lots by watching your videos allowing me to do some jobs on my own. So for that thanks!

    Mr Eric Rustman we all love eyeballing your expertise! More than you know too…

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars william pierce says:

    Just wondering. Have you ever welded up a caliper bracket. I have to repair worn out area. Before stainless abatement clips.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Bye says:

    I have the same issue here in Pennsville nj with my advance auto

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jon white says:

    wood workers chisel to take them caps off get a cheap set plenty of use on the auto for them

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lonnie Zonge says:

    I couldn’t get my rotor off so I commenced with the persuader. After several minutes of wailing on it, I realized I forgot to remove that little screw that holds on the rotor. Should have known cause I live in California. Not a huge amount of rust on the vehicles here.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt Derry says:

    Hey mine did same thing but I don't have cutting torch so I took my zippo lighter 😳 it actually worked after 4 days also once I got it all back together the rotor wouldn't budge like 😒 come on man

    You are a great teacher! Thank you
