Question about 2004 Chevrolet Impala
Would like the know how, on installing left and right front bearings on my vehicle listed above. Recent estimate (Firestone) complete job for $568.00. I believe I can do the job myself, with some guidance and save a hell of alot of money. Would appreciate very some input. Thank you.
The biggest problem you will have is breaking loose the axle nuts in your driveway with out an air gun. Pull the tire, Take the brake caliper off the braket, remove the caliper braket, remove the brake rotor,uplug the ABS wiring, be careful with that.,take the bolts out from the rear of the hub assembly and tap with a hammer to loosen it up and remove.Assemble and torque the new hub and axle nut to the service specs in the manual. I can get these for you if you want to attempt this but you will need quite a few special tools to do this.I don't know if you want to go there as I don't know your skill level.The price they gave you seems very reasonable for both sides. I hope this helps and if you need more clarification on this project feel free to pick my brain, Thanks , Dan
