It is indeed a 36mm on my 2002 Yukon XL. I have seen erroneous videos out there saying 2000-2006 model GM trucks (Silverados, Sierras, Suburbans, Yukons, etc.) use 35mm but manufacturer specs say 36mm torqued to 177 ft. pounds (you'll need a BIG torque wrench to do that--try renting one from Auto Zone before buying since you'll likely only need a torque wrench this big once).

How to replace a front wheel bearing chevy aveo


Once the Chevy aveo steering knuckle is removed, place the knuckle between 2 wood blocks and us e the correct size socket to pound out the hub and then do the same with the bearing. The bearing is in a 2" race shell with a roller bearing and seal on both ends. It can actually be pulled apart. Carefully pound the new bearing, then hub into the knuckle. Use the sockets if you have to.l Don't fret if the bearing comes apart. You can put it together when the shell is pounded in, before the hub is put in. The brass hub nut tightened to 221 ft lbs will tighten it all up. I did both sides of my Aveo with no problem.

My 99 chevy silverado 1500 4x4 new model has a rubbing noise when driving. I jacked truck up, both wheels off ground. Rolled driver side wheel. the sound of rubbing came from driver side of differential....


It sounds like the front bearings on the hub or hubs is going out. at high speeds you may not hear it.

but driving on a regular city street may sound louder. sometimes sounds like your transmission is going

out, but its the front hubs. since you have a 4 x 4 replacing the bearings is more in depth, you will need

special tools such as lock ring pliers and a special deep socket to remove the inner lock nut made for

chevy and gmc trucks. I would recommend you get a diaghram, the best money for your buck is to

go to alldata.com and purchase a membership for your truck, and it will have a wealth of info. to include

printing and anything in referance to your truck. each vehicle cost under 17 dollars per year . I have it

on all my vehicles. good luck!

How do you remove the front drive shaft in a 1999 Chevy 1/2 ton 4X4?


Jack up front end, and put on stands. Remove wheel. Remove large nut on end of drive shaft. Remove lower control arm, from wheel hub bearing assm.
Push drive shaft back toward transmission.
Now that drive shaft is free, you must "pop" it out of transmission output.
You can use a pry bar, but be careful not to damage anything.
