    How do you like the harbor freight earthquake half-inch impact wrench

    How happy are you with the harbor freight impact?

    living in eastern Canada and more salt than anywhere I have learned to cut u joint out with zip disc first , that way you are only banging out one cap at a time instead of 2 caps at the same time , less stress and pressure needed , in theory much less chance of bending ears on axle

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thedanyes says:

    It's interesting how hard it was to get the rest of that spline in. I wonder if it would be easier if you marked the axle shaft angle before you removed it and then inserted it back in the same orientation.

    Hey south main auto repair. Great videos! How long should this job take a guy if he has the proper tooling and space to do the job? Iโ€™m mechanically hands on but first time doing the job!

    excellent presentation. Wish I knew these needed replacing that frequently as my son is on the side of I-40 when front end vibration sheered the studs off and wheel rolled off. He says he recently tightened lug nuts with the new digital torque wrench I bought him. So he figures the bearing is shot and a shop he found on the road is doing the replacement even tho he could do it but he doesn't have all the tools needed especially the 1 5/16" 12 point and torque wrench with him.

    Hello, love your show very informative.
    I have a 2017 Dodge Ram 2500 with 35000 miles and I have a slight shake nothing drastic when I reach 39 to 49 mph and then it goes away. Any suggestions to why this is happening???
    Any help will be grateful.

    These are a PIA! I think kingpins are easier! Lol!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K D says:

    Absolutely no reason to reinstall the keepers on the studs. FYI – Most aftermarket wheels do not have relief cuts around the lug holes and a vibration or a loose wheel can result if they are not removed.

    Thanks for posting this. I don't see how you can be so happy while working in all that rust. Now I feel bad about complaining about the slight patina on my hubs. haha

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lt_Dans_legs14 says:

    Hey man is the passenger side bearing just that much harder to get all the way seated on the splines?

    He didnโ€™t put any new seals (any seals period) on before putting the hub back on.

    I just wanted to say thank you for your most wonderful work on creating these how to videos I have learned a great deal and I'm glad I don't live in New York area it's too bad the way that's all treasure vehicles in Mississippi we don't have that problem so I just wanted to say I appreciate you you're a very wonderful and knowledgeable good mechanic I noticed this video was put out two years ago if you still read these notes keep up the good work

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ricky brown says:

    It's funny you say that about wooden handle hammers. I bought the snap-on fiber handle set & find myself always going to the wooden ones also. Just old school maybe?

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ricky brown says:

    Why didn't you clean it before you put the axle In. Lol

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Big Blue says:

    I love your videos Eric the car guy

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cameron Garcia says:

    Great video. So its needs to be in four wheel drive before removing the axles? Been researching and first heard of this in your video. About to tackle this job this weekend on my 2008 ram 3500.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack says:

    great video and appreciate the detail. I have a couple questions. I blow out my wheel bearing and had to fix it on the road. when I put the brake caliper back on one of the bolts didn't seat all the way down. can I add a washer to it to make up the difference? been riding it as is for a month but now that warmer weather is here I figure I'll address it. second thing is when I did the repair (in the snow, in a parking lot of course) I noticed the u-joint needed replacing. ideally I would of done it at the same time but given the condition I figured it was better to wait. when I check the parts site it shows "Front shaft" and "Wheel joints" u-joint options. I need the same one you did but I'm thinking the "Front shaft" option is for the front of the drive shaft. thanks for any guidance you can provide. ๐Ÿ™‚
