    I have a press, basic tools and a good 3/4" torque wrench

    I'll need the locknut socket, below is one I found on Amazon.

    Can anyone recommend a good press bearing sleeve set?


    Also maybe a bearing knife?


    Also am I missing any other specialty tools, or helpful tools?



    I'm just digging into all the threads and videos on wheel bearing replacements.
    I've got a 2002 Doublecab Automatic 4x4 with automatic hubs.

    Going to do a complete replacement on all front suspension components while I install a new lift, real soon.

    The snap ring is kind of a pain because it's so big. But it sounds like you have everything you need. The bearing took alot of force to get out!

    Also the bearing looks the same on both sides, but apparently there is one side that is supposed to face out. I dont remember all the details because I had help but I remember it being mentioned.
