My luck with this car has run dry. Today, I attempted to replace the 4th half shaft in close to 4 years. This time, the shaft seems to have fused itself to the hub. I tried PB Blaster, WD40, fire, hammers, an air chisel, and a puller. The puller (snap-on) broke after getting the axle to move 1mm out of the hub.

I've had to resort to ordering a new knuckle and hub. Tomorrow, I'll be removing the old one all in one piece.

End rant.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I am still on stock hubs and halfshafts, but I need to replace the front driverside hub. Really considering letting a shop handle it so I don't end up breaking something I don't care to replace.

Also. Didn't realise you still owned a wbody... thought you were just down to the Subie for some reason.

Yupp, it's a disease that I can still live with. I haven't had any real problems since I fixed the 4th clutch shaft so it hasn't been bad to me. It's just that every time I work on it, something usually doesn't go as planned. I'd changed the axle 3 other times so I wasn't expecting this one to turn out like this.

That sucks. My repairs have all been one-shot deals, except the lim is leaking again.

Good luck with the replacement today!

I've had this happen to me as well. When I got my '02 LSS, the brake rotor was fused to the hub which was fused to the axle and knuckle. Was able to get everything cheap from the local pick n pull. Now I use neverseize on all of these items.

Been there... it's not a fun place. I bashed away at mine for about 20 hours of 2 weeks before giving up and getting a knuckle and axle to go with my new wheel hub.

I managed to salvage the knuckle. We set it on a few logs of wood and took a 5 pound sledge to the axle. After about 3 tried, the axle fell out.

All in all, I replaced the control arm, tie rod end, half shaft, end link, and the hub bearing. :I

How did the old bearing handle the pounding?

At least you managed to keep the knuckle. Could have been worse. Laughing

I'm not sure but it could have been the original bearing so I wasn't going to put it back in. It looked to have survived the beating though.

If I hadn't purchased a new knuckle, the old one would have found a way to break or something. Just my luck.
