Replacing my rear wheel axle seals...

What does it take to get the axle out of the housing? Don't you need a special puller, a slide hammer? I'm about to run to the parts store and borrow whatever I nee from them, sooooooo......?

Re: Replacing my rear wheel axle seals...

Perry, After removing the the drum, brake line, and four retainer bolts tap the backing plate from the rear side slightly with a shop hammer. They are usually not that tight unless the bearing is bad or you have broke an axle. I have changed several axles and never had to use a slide hammer. If you need help give me a call.

Re: Replacing my rear wheel axle seals...

If you can get a slide hammer, get it.. If not well, you can use a prybar and a hammer to get them out. If you havent removed the drums already there a bitch to get off... If a slide hammer isnt available, you can thread a lug nut on backwards, and using a pry bar pry the nut and have the pry bar resting on a stud on the axle (tat holds the drum on)
To get the axle out, you must remove the 4, 12mm nuts, then using the hammer bang LOTS and hard all around the axle tube where the bearing is.. its just a tiny bit past the flange. Then using a pry bar get it between the flange and backing plate, while hammering pry and it sho0uld come out. Not the easiest way but it works. Other ways to get the drum off, jack up the truck, remove the 4, 17mm nuts and lock washers off the drum, and kick the tyre from behind, this somtimes works.. make sure the truck is well supported when you do this.
