    So I replaced my spindle just the other day. Went for an aligment and the guy said my bearing was bad! Anyways I got did a google search and this post popped up. It seems like you have everything covered but one. You forgot to mention how to pull the bearing out of the spindle. Now that was what I was actually looking for. Putting it back in would just consist of bolting all 4 corners down. I think I messed my bearing up when I was trying to take it out.

    don't know what you mean about removing the bearing from the spindle.. the hub just unbolts from the spindle and the bearing remains intact in the hub. if you are talking about replacing the bearing in the hub, then your best bet is to order a replacement from NJ636 otherwise you can damage the bearing and have catastrophic failure if you don't have the bearing seated properly.

    Is welding the spindle gussets on difficult? On a scale of 1-10, 10 being professional/excellent welder, I'm about a 5 or 6. Would this be something a more experienced welder should do? My beads are decent, I just have to hone in my consistency.

    Thanks for the write-up, it helped this weekend. I had trouble getting the hub off of the spindle, had to use a bearing puller to coax it off the CV, looks like it was rusted a little.
