1. Put the vehicle in gear, apply the parking brake and break loose the driveaxle/hub nut with a socket and large breaker bar.
2. Loosen the wheel lug nuts, raise the vehicle and support is securely on lackstands. Remove the wheel. Remove the driveaxle/hub nut.
3. Unbolt the brake caliper and hang it out of the way with wire. Remove the brake disc.
4. On models with four wheel ABS, trace the electrical lead for the wheel speed sensor along the upper control arm, then forward along the frame rail and unplug the electrical connector.
5. Remove the hub assembly-to-steering knuckle bolts. Remove the brake disc shield and wheel speed sensor assembly and set aside.
6. Tap the hub assembly from side-to-side to break it loose from the steering knuckle. Pull the hub assembly off the end of the driveaxle. Wrap the end of the driveaxle with a rag to prevent damaging it. If the hub is stuck on the splines on the end of the driveaxle, use a puller to free it.
7. Installation is reverse of removal process. Be sure to lubricate the driveaxle splines with multi-purpose grease, and tighten all of the fasteners to the proper torque.

Hi Barry,
 Last year I did replaced a hub for my 1994 Isuzu Rodeo and it's a bit complicated than I thought, my advise is get your self a service manual for your truck and it will show you the disassembly and assebly process. Its goo to have it by you side when you start the job.
Good luck.

My 98 gmc jimmy 4d 4wd makes a loud humming noise as I drive it.

a front wheel beran will make a grinding nose if it is bad and when you trun one way or the other the nose will go away. i do not think that is your prolbem . if your car vibberate or make a skueaking nose it could be cv joint or a front universal joint.

1986 GMC Jimmy 4WD problem

Rich. There is a vacumn engagement of the front differential. The switch is on the transfer case. There will be a vacumn motor(looks like a curise control unit if you're familiar with them) under the hood with a cable running to the front diff. Make sure it functions when you engage 4wd. Probably does. If not, make sure it is getting vacumn by removing the line. It should **** on your finger when covered. If this all works properly, you could have trouble in the front diff. Don't forget the simple stuff, like CV joints, axle nuts tight, etc. You're driving an 86 so I assume you have a little experience in maintaince. Good luck. TJ
