Is the spacer that goes on the axle before the bearing reusable??? I was able to get the bearings and retainers from Carquest but they had no listing for the spacer. Thanks.

If it's showing no damage or signs of wear I son't see why not.

Be carefull here. You happen to have one of the older model bearings that actually used a separate spacer. Some feel that these bearings are superior to ones that are on the market today. The bearings on the market today have the spacer BUILT IN. That is, the bearing just has an extra lip on it. Its part of the bearing, not welded on or anything. This new bearing design is one that my Suzuki dealership has gone with. So apparantly everyone should have the bearings with the spacer built in. But as I said earlier, there are people that feel that old style bearing set up with the separate spacer is superior...so somebody is still making them.
