in the instruction from the link posted, which by the way were great when I did mine, it recommends using the wheel bearing socket to seat the bearing correctly. Has anyone done it without this tool? or know a brick and mortar store to get but it at?

I repacked my bearings over the summer but didn't have the socket avaible so i'm thinking the bearing is not seated correctly. I took my car to nissan to get the steering column replace under the new recall that came out and they said the front wheels have play in them which i think is due to the bearings.

I thought I had read in one of the original how-to threads on repacking the bearings that the 4 prong socket isn't the same diameter that you need for the xterra. I think someone that did it ended up having to hammer the prongs inward to fit and it wasn't perfect.

sorry, I think I've been posting the same question in 2 separate wheel bearing threads.

I think I found it. Autozone has it, not in stock at the stores though, but if you order it over the phone through the store and pick it up there's no shipping. $15.99, doesn't specifically say it fits nissan but fits Honda Passport, Jeep J20 with the Dana 60 axle. Looks about the same as the one from autopart.com.

I've been reading the how-to at http://www.rkrenn.com/xterra/howto/bearing/bearing.htm

My X is two-wheel drive only. Since I don't have the hub do I have to worry about having snap-ring pliers to do this? I'm trying to get everything together to take care of this tomorrow. Also, what's a good spot to put the jack stands while this is being done?

New to the forum

I am about to replace the hubs on my 2001 xterra and wanted to repack and service the bearings while I was in there. I keep seeing this tutorial http://www.rkrenn.com/xterra/howto/bearing/bearing.htm referenced, the only problem is their is a 505 error and I can't find the tutorial anywhere. Would anyone on this thread have access to this? did you print it off or save it as a pdf, if so I'd really appreciate your help!

Thanks

If you want to bring your truck to Brooklyn I'll do this job for you and teach you how for a couple of slices and a beer.
