So I removed the old one without checking. which way does the rear seal face? Picture 1 with the opening facing into the hub, or picture 2 with the opening facing out of the hub?

Also, a picture of my pressing need. tried the freeze and torch method, will revert to dropping by the local auto shop...

Thanks,

Jon

If you're talking about pressing that bearing race into the seat, a socket with same diameter and hammer works like a champ. You don't even need a BFH usually.....

and she's done!

Next step - repair rust on the tail of the driver's side frame rail.

at least, make it look like its repaired...

thanks again,

Jon

I swear by a set of these. Use a punch/mallet to remove the old races, and these soft aluminum drifts to reinstall. You'll know that the race has seated completely when the tone of your hammer tapping changes!

Available at any auto parts store. A "must have" in my opinion - and CHEEP!
