    so, leaving the assembly on, i washed the spindles/hubs in water/purpler power.

    Now obviously it squeaks, and the bearings are probably frying. ideas? i just had the spindles off for new ball joints and tie rod ends and dont REALLY wanna take them off again.

    cram axle grease in abs sensor hole?

    no...dont put grease in thru the abs hole...it'll fubar the sensor. the wheel bearings are sealed, by the way. they have to be pressed in and out.
