    • I've never done carrier bearings i just wanted to know if its something i can do with basuc tools

    • im goin to try my best not to swamp mine in the mudd

    • You will have to have a monster wrench(55mm) or close to it to get the axle nut off.just don't beat the axle up to much like I did.lol

    • ok ill have to find out the exact size wrench so i can buy one

    • I would just buy a big enough adjustable wrench

    • yea but they have a tendencie to round bolts sometimes i rather just buy the correct tool if I'm going to need it

    • Also going to need a hammer and a block of wood put the block of wood against the axle and pound it out. You will need a punch to tap the bearing out too. When you put the new bearings in fine a piece of pipe or a big socket that fits good around the very outer part of the bearing and tap the bearing in with that

    • i got a good amount of tools I've just never had to install them before. my self and my x will need them in the future i am sure what's a good bearing kit to buy off ebay

    • I usually get all balls bearings.

    • cool
