Question about 1996 GMC Sierra
Would like to view a how to video on replacing the front wheel bearings on my 97 gmc 1500 4x4
if you put your vehicle information in at advanceautoparts.comyou can search sway bar and find parts that you need - there was someinfo missing on which sierra model you have as far as engine size andvin # match but I came to: http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/partlist_Sway-Bar-Link-Kit_78_R|GRPCHASAMS__sway%20bar___

Take the front axle actuator out of the axle. Plug it back in and have some one push the 4x4 button. The actuator should move, it's a liniar motor. If it doesn't then the actuator is bad or there is a wiring problem. If it does there is a problem in your front diff or some where else in the system.
I'd take a guess and say it's the front actuator.

The hub, bearing, and ABS sensor are a single unit on this vehicle. You need to remove the wheel, brake rotor & caliper [don't disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, just support it out of the way] and then remove the large nut that holds the axle shaft in the hub assembly. Once you have all this loose or removed you'll find that the hub is held on with 3 fairly large capscrews that come in from the backside of the steering knuckle that the hub attaches too. Assembly is just the reverse of the process. Make sure you tighten all the bolts and nuts securely with a torque wrench [I don't have the torque spec's here] I apply threadlocker to all of these bolts as they are vital to safety. I only use OEM hubs on these as I've had the best luck with them and the ABS sensors inside of them.
