    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    So I just got done with the wheel bearing job. Super easy by the way. I was expecting a lot more issues. Thank you for everyone who commented on this post to help me. I followed everything exactly but I noticed as I was tightening the outer spindle the inner one would move a little until the...

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    Got it. Any idea which spindle socket i need? I'm having trouble figuring out if it's the 2 1/4 or 2 3/8 4 prong one..

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    @RangerX I read your comment on a post that was made a few years ago about the torques. I believe you said 35 foot pounds on the inner nut, back off 1/4th, tighten 16 inch pounds. Put on washer and tighten outer nut to 150 foot pounds. But I've read some people like to tighten it up to 250 foot...

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    Excellent link! Thank you @RangerX sadly it doesn't seem like some of the links that would be handy for me work.. Yes, I do have manual hubs which means I don't have that locking key? That's great news! So all I should need is the spindle nut socket? 2 3/8 inch if I am correct. I figured there...

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    @damasodeljr Ah, yeah that makes a lot more sense lol. I have one of those telescope magnetic pick up tool things and I am hoping that will be strong enough. Don't have any pocket flats

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    @blue m&m I just check it out is pretty much horizontal. @damasodeljr thats the only part I am somewhat worried about is that magnetic part. Thank you for the tips. I actually replaced my calipers and brake pads a few months ago so I'm good on that.

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    Man I am really confused by this now lol. So I just snapped a pic for you. To my knowledge I should be able to change out the bearings pretty easily without slicing anything. I am definitely not a machanic and only work on my own vehicles but maybe there is something I am missing. Dirty I know.

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    Solid in the rear independent in the front. I'm not sure about the solid axle but the front independent axle bearings aren't sealed in the way I believe you are talking about. You have to pack it and seal it up yourself. The bearings come to you like this: I'll be following Glacier's guide...

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    Yeah seals are on my list also (Timken 4250). Im not to worried about getting the seals in correctly. Mainly just getting the spindle back on correctly. I know about the 20foot/20inch torque rule but I always second guess myself in situations like that. Also, do you guys just use standard wheel...

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    Thank you for your reply! I've looked up the National's and the specs do match. So I'll be ordering the Timken's. I know there is a well written guide on here for replacing the bearings but I am curious if you had any tips, tricks or solutions for and problems you ran into.

    Correct set of wheel Bearings?

    I'm going to be switching out my front wheel bearings. Both inner and outer on both tires. I want to get Timken's and as far as I can tell, mainly gathering my information from rock auto, Timken's set 37 is what I need all around for my 92 sport 4x4 with manual hubs. Can anyone else confirm...

    Easiest way to replace the speaker wires going to the doors?

    Did some searching couldnt find anything. Installing a new head unit, aftermarket amp, speakers and speaker wire. Only two issues i am running into and one of them is figuring out how to properly run new speaker wire to both the doors. Ideally id like to run it through the door grommets but it...

    Just bought a remanufactured steering gearbox. I think it might be defective but want to make sure.

    It had some fluid inside of it from testing i am guessing but yeah i only turned it around a handful of times as i was worried about wear also. Good to hear that its normal and a sign of a correctly remanufactured gearbox. Thank you for the speedy reply BKennedy.

    Just bought a remanufactured steering gearbox. I think it might be defective but want to make sure.

    I got a ACDelco 36g0031 gearbox today and I was checking it out and noticed when turning the input shaft it's pretty stiff around the center and loser when I go about half a turn clockwise or counter clockwise. I've never changed one before and wanted to make sure that's normal before I switch...

    No crank issue

    I am arcing from the fender solenoid.

    No crank issue

    I'm going to check this out after work. I have a manual transmission and from what I gathered my neutral safety switch is on my clutch. I followed a guide on this forum to bypass it to rule it out as the problem. Which I believe was splicing the pink and red wire you are talking about together...

    No crank issue

    Excuse my ignorance but if i am still able to arc the fender solenoid to start the car multiple times and counting wouldnt that kind of rule out a harness issue? My assumption is that if i am able to still start it by arcing then the starter and wires going to it should be good. Thats why i...

    No crank issue

    I will definitely check that out tomorrow after work. That also reminds me actually. About two months ago I went to start my car and I would hear a loud click then I would lose power completely for about five minutes. I think just opening and closing my door got the power to go back on. Then it...

    No crank issue

    Anyone have any ideas? I have my nutrual safety switch bypassed. Battery reads at 12.6. I can arc the relay solenoid and it starts right up. Not getting any clicks when trying to crank. Lights don't dim. Getting proper volts to the solenoid. Only thing that seems iffy is the little red wire that...

    No crank issue

    92 explorer sport. Have power to everything and battery volts are good but when I try to start the engine I am getting nothing no sounds or cranking. Figured it was my starter relay solenoid. Arked it and it started. Went to the auto parts store got a new one and the same thing happened when I...

    Altered e brake tention limiter

    I'm hoping someone can explain to me why the area where the tension limiter is on the e brake cable was altered, what it is suppose to look like, what parts I would be needing to restore it and if this would be why my e brake doesnt automatically adjust while pressing down the e brake after a...

    Loud squeaking/squealing from drums

    I went and bought some of this stuff along with new shoes and drums for the hell of it. Wasn't expensive. Anyways the brake grease I put on there before was pretty much nonexistent. New grease, shoes and drums and everything is quiet, smooth and brakes so much better. Thank you for the...

    Loud squeaking/squealing from drums

    Hey, I am getting a very loud squeaking/squealing from the rear end. From what i can tell its coming from the drums. Im not sure why though. It happens most often not when i press the brakes but when i accelerate from a stop. Although i do get some squeaking when applying the brakes also. After...

    Questiona about changing axle gear and driven gear after getting bigger tires

    Yeah im not sure how much mpg i am getting now but with the stock tires i was getting around 320 a tank with mixed highway and city driving. I called Les Schwab and they said since i havent had the tires for long they would change it out to stock size for free. I might end up doing that. I took...

    Questiona about changing axle gear and driven gear after getting bigger tires

    I think ive bit off more then i can chew. I did the research to make sure i could get the biggest tires with a stock setup but didnt take anything else into consideration. Ill have to save up to get the 3.73 swaps done. Complete axle change seem like the best way to go but its still pretty...

    Questiona about changing axle gear and driven gear after getting bigger tires

    I apologize if this is in the wrong thread. I wasnt sure which one would be more appropriate. I just got new tires (265/75R/15) replacing my old ones (235/75R/15) on my 92 sport. First, great fit, no rubbing and the open country a/t looks badass on it. I want to change my driven gear to correct...

    Quick tie rod question

    I went ahead and replaced my inner tie rods and then got a alignment done. Much tighter sterring. Like driving a different car basically. I had a lot of difficulty getting the tie rods out none of the tricks I was looking up worked had to go rent a puller to get them off. ExploreHudson...

    Where and what are the end links if you dont mind me asking? I dont know a lot about the steering components.

    Quick tie rod question

    Probably a newbie question but with all four tires on the ground i can grab onto my tie rods from the front end and kinda twist them up and down a good amount. Not to sure if this is normal or extremely bad and i cant find any information on that kind of play with a 92 explorer. Thank you.

    Squeaking when accelerating vibration when slowing down

    The two u joint pictures i took were from the driveshaft at the transmission and the driveshaft at the rear axle. According to this picture. The u joints from the transfer case to the front all seemed good. Its in rear wheel drive all the time so i figured the u joints for the front were not the...

    Squeaking when accelerating vibration when slowing down

    Ok so ive been able to check it out a little more. Rear end tires, drums and hardware look good. I wasnt able to raise the back end up fully, because i dont have stands or a proper jack so i had to do one tire at a time, but i noticed when i rotated the tires back and forth there wasnt any...

    Squeaking when accelerating vibration when slowing down

    Thanks for the tips. There definitely wasn't any squeaking or vibration before I changed the drum brakes and it didn't start until a handful of weeks after I did them. It will take me a few days to narrow it down more but when I do I'll post what I've came up with. Thanks for the help and...

    Squeaking when accelerating vibration when slowing down

    All four of them seem tight. It's kinda hard to get to the ones behind the front hubs but I didn't see or feel any significant movement.

    Squeaking when accelerating vibration when slowing down

    92 explorer sport 4x4 5 speed manual with manual locking hubs. Ive been having some squeaking going on at pretty much all speeds for a few weeks now but havent done anything about it. But this morning i started to get some vibrations while slowing down starting at about 35-40 mph. The closer i...

    They arent the same. One is square with 8 pins with a big gray line coming out of it and the other is rectangle with the speaker wiring coming out of it. I have searched the forums before i posted this question but wasnt able to find exactly what i was looking for. I guess i didnt look hard...

    Help on what to buy to replace stock stereo

    T Thank you! Crutchfield is pretty badass in the sense that they provide everything you need for basically free. Said they didnt have a deck kit for my explorer though. Either way the best and easiest place to get what i need for my audio. Thanks again Jason94sport.
