Default Ram Wrenchin' in Big Rapids

Doin' some work on the truck tomorrow (Saturday) around noon at the Car Care Clinic right next to north Admiral gas station. Not doing much, just both front axle u-joints and a few other small things. For those of you in the area that I haven't met yet, stop by and say hi.

I'm guessing you've never had to try to get 4wd BR Ram unit bearings off before...especially if they haven't been off since the factory put them on?

I said good luck with them the other day in chat. They are a bitch with all the tools. Hopefully they fall right out.

Hubs came out very easy. When you have the socket on the bolts, just pound on the socket with a hammer and the hub pops right out. The bad u-joint came out very easily. Thank god for ball-joint presses.
