    If i understand right you are trying to replace the bearing. To get it out you have to put it on a press. or if you have the right tools they make a press that you can use with an inpact gun. Both ways are sometimes a biatch. But that is the only way.

    Oh and be careful not to mess up the abs ring or your abs light will come on.

    if your changing the spindles to camburg or tc you dont need to tear those apart. the drums comes off and then there are 4 bolts behind the hub that connect the hub assemble to the spindle. a wrench and hammers will do it for you. masada and myself did this a couple weeks back


    edit: just realized this was a first gen

    oh and to take it apart if your trying to do something like the wheel bearings...you need a special service tool :p

    edit: 2nd gen would need a sst idk about you. sorry i just jumped to the 2nd conclusion :(

    figured. i wouldnt think there would be a big difference and/or the lack of tooling needed for something like that.

    oh and btw i realized why you need to do this haha i just subscribed to your other thread! keep up the good work man

    just fab something up real quick that fills into those 4 holes (not even necessarily all 4) on the backside and gives you leverage to turn it free

    check out the following site...tons of great info on the first gen tacos...which a lot of the suspension applys to the 99 4runners as well...hope that helps!

    http://bajataco.com/tech/

    also, i remember when i had my 98 there was a guy from ttora that did some 6" fabtech and procomp lift writeups which talked all about pressing in new bearings to the spindles...search google for articles dating back to ~2002 for that info...

    also, if your just trying to get the bearings out because your going to replace them, use a trick i just learned...weld a bead around the outer race fo the bearing...therefore when the weld cools, it will bull the metal in just enough to no longer have an intereference fit and will pop right out...well, at least thats what the mechanics at the local oil refineries say as to how they get bearings our of some of their pumps in the refinery! use at your own risk!

    holly crap...that was an ordeal...many things went wrong...

    1 - toyota tightened the front hard brakeline/rubber line connection so hard that they flared the end of the bolt as well, therefore it would not unscrew from the rubber line. i had to dremel the rubber line off the hardline and reflare the hard line.

    2 - had to get a puller for the 4 ball joints...beating a hammer would NOT work, both dad and i tried it!

    3 - camburg cross threaded one of the wheel bearing threads. i drove all around right before auto places were closing to try to get one of those helicoil thread repair kits...only to find out that non of them had the right pitch i needed! i got lucky and ended up being able to clean the threads good enough to get the bolt to go in...but that set me back almost 2 hours!!

    4 - didnt notice the whole grinding the caliper weld down until i went to install the pass side...at least i did the driver side when it was off the truck!

    5 - i installed and bled the front lines cause i had to get tires on saturday...but didnt realize that the spindles dont use the OEM mouting at the hardline/softline interface...so i had to undo that and rebleed the line!

    ...the rear leafs went right in and alignment went smooth on sunday though....

    i was thinking it was going to be a fun, easy weekend working on the truck and hanging out w/ old buddies, but it turned into a midnight and 2am ordeal, all the while being stressed that i wouldnt get the tires on saturday or the absolutely needed alignment on sunday!

    so yea...thats the short of it! thanks again for your post and directions, they really helped me out. about the only thing i did right was install the ABS sensor before mounting the spindles!!

    hahaha ya man sounds like a hell of a time with that! thankfully you got it done and it works well and all worked out! one of my threads were jacked so we just drove that screw right in and it worked out. the brake lines where probably the hardest part of the whole install. the hard lines were a pain in the ass to deal with and then mounting them with the extended ones to the tab on the spindle was a B!

    glad its all good now and hope your enjoying them so far!!!

    Find you a nice 20 Ton Press and have at it. Just make sure you know what your doing first, or you will tear some shit up like you never thought was possible.
