I'm trying to change my driver rear axle bearings! Bought the 4 prong tool for the nut but its either really tight or something is holding it! I don't see anything in the keyway! Anything that i am missing?
Don't you need to push on the nut with the socket while turning it?
Yes you need to apply pressure while turning it. The socket that I bought was hub pilot centered. After you remove the lock nut and bearing you reinstall the socket into the hub center. The socket has a depression in the middle to hold the puller while you remove the hub. I have seen lots of conflicting ideas on torquing the bearings on this forum. Torquing them to 65 ft lbs and then backing them off 1/8 turn seems to work. But I am no expert, just my experience.
