Do these trucks use unit bearings in the front? Helping a buddy out this weekend and I'm gathering knowledge about the job before we start, and NAPA's website is showing roller bearings. I thought a 3/4 ton SFA truck would have unit bearings.

Help.

Awesome, Thanks for the help, but I'm not done yet

Which is correct, loctite or antiseize on the bolts holding the unit bearing to the knuckle?

I try to follow torque specs as much as possible. Do you know the torque specs of those bolts and the spindle nut?

I never use antiseize or loctite on the unit bearing nuts. They have a knurled face on the flange to lock the nut.

There isn't a spindle nut on unit bearings.

One tip. When you go buy a new unit bearing, it will not have the 4 unit bearing studs on it. You can either go buy new ones from the dealer (get new nuts too), or you can try to remove the old studs and put them on the new bearing. that process is a serious pain in the ass. You have to double nut the stud and apply a serious amount of heat on the unit bearing to remove the stud. Without a torch, you'll never get the studs removed.

couldn't I just use a hydraulic press and press the studs out, heating if needed?

i dont see why you couldnt. we have done the bearings on my dads excursion, same thing. and we got the wrong bearing once, it had the course studs not the fine so we swapped them and they came right out no problems.
