Re: AMC20 axle bearings install tricks wanted....
I'm guessing contamination. I wouldn't think I put enough miles on my jeep to wear out a wheel bearing. I'm assuming those things should last a life time. I don't see any OBVIOUS signs of contamination, but I'm not really one to shy away from water/mud.
I have NO idea what brand name the axles are. I can't find any markings whatsoever on them. Again, when I bought them, I assumed that one piece axles were all the same. I'm sure I bought them from 4wd Hardware, but no clue as to what brand.
Do y'all think they all use the same bearings? My napa dude pulled the "stock" bearing from the shelf and it wasn't even CLOSE. We are hoping the guy that does the actual press work, will have run into this before, and have a clue what to do. But otherwise, I'm gonna be up a creek.
