I put 04 blazer spindles on my car


So, the rear seal was causing the drag?
That rear seal had the bevel to keep the grease in?
You left the rear seal in and just dealt with the drag?
I wouldn’t think it would be much of a problem with all that weight and force with the roll.


I really enjoyed this video.
I gather it’s the same exact application for the 1986 Buick Regal Grand National, as it’s a G-body. Yes?

Very helpful video, im planning on doing the same job cause im doing coil overs project, right now for the rear, and will change the hubs with bearings in the front, doing disc conversion on my GN car and the bigger discs. Installing parts from UMI as well

DJR says:

The original bearing washer fit ok on mine with the Wilwood cap…just FYI. (84 Monte Carlo SS). So, not sure if there is some variance from the factory or what.

fred hendricks says:

do you still have the factory 15×7 wheels

Nice video! Do you have p/n for the bearing and seals used? Or did they come with the hub assembly from Wilwood?
