Why not head up to Hawkins Pt. and find a 9-5 and pull the hub and bearing assembly?

buy the whole knuckle? timing is an issue, have you seen many 99-01's out there? i'd be worried about buying one with a bad bearing and have to replace it anyways.

my axle is rusted to the splines anyways and i couldnt get it out with an air hammer so im looking at having to use the press anyways..

I doubt the bearing will stay intact, it almost always rips the inner bearing race out when you press the hub off, but you might get lucky.

Just get a new bearing to be safe? Return it if it doesn't break, or just replace it anyway.

I wouldn't either (chance it). That's a fair bit of work to not replace a 50$ bearing (advance auto) less if bought online.

I don't remember destroying my bearings though, I think they came out in ine piece when I replaced mine. They were discarded so I don't know if they were damaged.

When I did the bearings on my NG, one came out in pieces, the other came out as a whole unit, but it was incredibly loose at that point.

did you have an issue putting it back in becasue of how loose the baring was?

did it wear the knuckle out?

sadly i dont have a bearing issue, the place i bought my car from a year ago cross treaded a couple bolts... so now they like to come loose at random and im just sick of pulling over on the side of the road to re tighten them. bearing hub, clip, and 20 new lugs arrive today. hopefilly i wont fucked up my abs magnet trying to replaced them tonight.

I did not put it back, i replaced it. It's a pretty important part of the car, for the piece of mind I spent the $50 on a new one.

Even if you press the hub off without ripping the inner race out, you will have damaged (dimpled) the race by forcing the inner race into the bearings, and the bearings into the outer race.

When you press the hub in, you need to support the inner race from the back so that doesn't happen, but pressing the hub out, you can't protect it.

If your bearing is still good, it won't be when you press the hub out.

I have a 99 and need to replace my driver front as well. I'm going to pick up a new bearing and hub and have my local shop press it for me. Anyone have instructions how to take it off the car? Thanks.
