Did this video help you?

David Rubio: Hey what size is your different? Is it an 8.5 ´╗┐

Sam Wright: Where do you pack the grease´╗┐

DillysADV: @tiletrader1 I typically try to avoid modifications because if something goes wrong, it is harder to get parts and fewer mechanics will know how to get the parts or repair them... I had no problem with the fill hole or the gasket..

supernatdan04: make a video on how to fix the front end ! wheel bearings :O

ra777wow: Well done. I might add some of that gear oil to the bearings ,as it could be a little slow for it to get there :)

DillysADV: Glad to be of service

GreenLightBlinking: What are all those springs on your wheels? i have a 98 blazer and i'm doing the same project on mine but my blazer doesn't have those springs. am i missing springs or something?? btw, this video is very helpful. thanks

DillysADV: Glad the hear!

DillysADV: I know but this is a option if you don't have access.. because I didn't at the time and this was just an example of thinking out of the box with things you have laying around.

supernatdan04: ahh lame .. i need it now xD my front end just broke today ;p tryin to figure out how to fix.... ;/

PlugUlgy: Wow. Great vid. Just what I needed to see. Thank you.

DillysADV: @itsjojo4 Thanks hope it helped

DillysADV: Thanks for watching, yes, as I have mentioned before, this is for those that may not have access to loner tools like most of us.

Robert Herman: I hear that you should only do one side at a time.

itsjojo4: Great video man!

DillysADV: @FLOGURFACE Harbor freight would have added 1.5 hours to this job. I was not originally planning on replacing the bearings until I saw they had a lot of pitting. the lubrication part was easy. not sure why you thought it would be hard.. I Have though about cutting the teeth off the sprocket that I use as a driver but.. what foot are you talking about. I would not jump to ford that quick.. I have had far more problems with Fords than I have Chevs.. this one has seen a hard life w/ +200,000 mi

DillysADV: that is a good idea, I'll have to try that next time I'm into it.

Rue Nabi: is this the same for a 03 blazer

DillysADV: it turned out they were asking about the axle bumpers hanging from the frame. I don't know if they were on all years or not.

DillysADV: It should be very close, there may be some minor changes but overall the same style.

DillysADV: Thanks for the tip.. I did use synthetic but I like the idea of the grease as well.

DillysADV: @supernatdan04 I thought you might say that .. I would do it now but I am pretty well out of funds... Good luck.. hope you get it going.. did it just cease the bearings ?

SickenedSparrow: So you can't take axel out without taking rear end apart?

tiletrader1: Thanks--I really appreciate your feedback--really shows what a classy individual you are---Looks like you can buy the bearings and seal or get a "axle repair kit" -- looks like the "Kit" re-orients the location of the bearings on the axle (slightly) and that the seal is actually on the inside of the bearings and comes as a single component-- any thoughts on this-- finally did you get a new cover and gasket--or just fight and grease the old fill hole

tiletrader1: Thank You---It helped alot---I will be attempting this next week---Kinda confused when you were re-inserting the spider gears---but hopefully it will become clear when facing me---I appreciate you sharing this info---

supernatdan04: dont know to much about it.. never worked on a bearing before ......... i just know its not there ne more xD its like completly gone

Curt8153: I have a 96 Blazer with 156K miles. I hear a hummming noise from the rear end, I guess it's my wheel bearings going bad.

spikefish1989: a hockey puck works real nice as a seal driver

creeker1988: Thanks for this.

Rue Nabi: thanks bro....... i have 2 change my bearing too..... it looks like a fun job tho.

Larry Elford: thanks for a very clear video, and great explanation of everything. The home grown, money saving ingenuity were a highlight. Much appreciated. Canada.

DillysADV: not on this one. you have to pull the spider gears and the pin to pull the axle.

DillysADV: @supernatdan04 that is probably not too far out as the front end has been acting up and needs to be gone through as it is about to hit 200k miles. stay tuned for it this summer

DillysADV: @nativebrother yea, but it is not necessarily for the mechanical needs but rather your memory. if you are assembling it an cannot remember how something went.. you would have the other side as a reference.. I have torn these apart so many times that it is no longer a problem.

Doug Carpenter: Uh, yeah, there's an easier way to pull the bearings. Autozone and O'Reilly have bearing puller kits and a slide hammer to use for free so you can do it properly. You'll need a bear installer kit also.

DillysADV: That is a brilliant suggestion.. not to hard and not too soft.. I may just have to see if I can find one somewhere not.. thanks!

Emt Scythe: If you don't have a "long bar" you can rent the proper tool for free at most parts stores.

T S Mcraedy: You might try a short piece of heater hose to wedge you socket. That will keep the wood splinters out of the axle housing. Full redneck points for ingenuity. Unfortunately your man card is revoked for worrying about your wife's anger about some oil on the driveway.

MrBowNaxe: Just what I was looking for! Thanks for the video...worked like a champ on my '97 Suburban.

DillysADV: always glad to help. thanks!

773steve: great video i had such a hard time taking out my bearings i used a home made dent puller next time i will use your way

heavymechanic2: I just did the same seal job on a similar truck, I never messed with the bearings because they looked OK. That was a great tip on knocking out the old bearings, I used to do this type of work before there was a loan-a-tool program. BTW: you should push a little wheel bearing grease in the rollers before putting in the axle because the oil can be slow to get there. I prefer synthetic oil, fewer problems and less maintenance.

liveyourlifewell: Those are the drum brake parts if you have rear disk brakes you dont have those parts.

DillysADV: That sounds right to me. as you can see it is not hard to get to them to inspect and could save a lot of money if you get to them soon.

ruger111dog: Or you can go to just about any auto parts store and get a loaner puller set.

DillysADV: Good to know! glad to have been of help!

DillysADV: @tiletrader1 when you get into it and have questions.. let me know... glad that it helped

FLOGURFACE: Wow dude, that could have been so much easier if you went to harbor freight and got a 20.00 puller. And you say you have done this many times and STILL do it this way...whoa dude. To the guy that wants to put the seal in before the bearing...good luck lubricating your bearing, lol. It should be about 100 miles to the next set. lol One more thing, if you cut the teeth off of your sprocket seal setter and remove a foot, it may work better . My next tool is going to be a FORD screw these Chevies!
