front differential side bearing replacement.. done!

Well I finally got around to replacing the drivers side output shaft needle bearing in my front diff to resolve the typical grinding noise. Im talking about the noise that exists in 2wd and goes away in 4wd.

I used a 3 jaw puller on a slide hammer that I rented from autozone. It took about 5 min of hammering but it came out without any big problems. I also replaced my cv axle while I was taking everything apart

And the verdict is... totally gone! From taking a test drive up to 70mph the noise is totally gone! It took me about 5 hours to do everything, and the biggest problem I had was finding space to get the axle out.

Congrats!

Pictures? For those of us that haven't ever done anything like this, a step-by-step DIY with pics would be really good! And if someone in NorCal is going to do it, I'd be willing to travel to your location to take pics along the way for a DIY.

This is the most depressing thread ever. It's like having bad sex with a supermodel and no orgasm.

Give us more OP!

I'm tempted to call BS on this. If it was as easy as the OP makes it out to be a lot more people would have done it already, with pics to prove it.

Oh, it was made to sound easy, but he's not the first. You have to know which threads to follow to see where he learned it could be done.

He probably had some kind of clue how to turn a wrench, I saw alot of guys saying on TW that it took them 5-6hrs someone even said all day to put a front set of 5100's some people just don't know what they're doin, the OP obviously did

Yeah and why would it not just fail again if you used the same part?? Pics of the destroyed bearing in question would be great....and put all these rumors to rest.

Total BS
