30 years and never heard it called never seize lol. Its called anti seize, especially for jeeps. Anything can seize up lol.

What do you torque hub nut and 3 bolts holding hub on?

gdahlm says:

FYI, on JKs the unit bearings can even be run without the stub shaft in an emergency as the unit bearings are fully contained. This means that you can loosen the axle nut and torque it with the wheel touching the ground (if your wheels allow for the socket to fit).

Just don't try this on a YJ or earlier or you will have a bad day.

How long should a stock wheel bearing last? My jku on 2.5" lift with 35s has 52k miles and I just started noticing a slight vibration. If I grab my front drivers side tire I can wiggle the wheel back and forth a little bit.. that a wheel bearing symptom?

Great video buddy! Does this sound like a bad wheel bearing to you? Or u-joint?

jason jones says:

Would’ve been great if you would have included the torque specifications for every nut that you took off and then reinstalled……

I replaced mine about 10k miles ago one side got end play again getting death wobble again I'm on 37" tire probably why.

Chill Solo says:

I don't understand why my wheel bearings were so difficult, I've changed many bearings before but on my jk the bearing would not separate from the axle until I went to a shop and they used 20 tons of pressure to separate them. The new bearings will not go onto the axle and now I have to get 2 new axles. A $200 job turned into $1000 .

What’s the deal with your ball joints? Was the castle nut not tightened down?

Day 2 Day says:

Put it in 4wd to break the nut loose.

Thanks for the tutorial!

Hi, I couldn't get my speed sensor to budge. So I've sprayed it with DW40 and left it till next weekend. I have a suspicion that its the sensor that is damaged and not the bearing. Could this be the case? Thanks,
