View Full Version : YJ Front Hub Rebuild

April 6th, 2006, 10:14 PM
Has anyone pressed apart YJ Front Hubs to clean and relub the bearings. I have one about 1/2 apart using the bolts to push the hub apart. But when I get it apart I do not know if I can clean and lube the bearings and press it back together. Anyone have any thoughts or experience :thumb-up: ?

A very long time ago when I didn't know anything about unit hubs....my dad asked me if I ever regreased my bearings, I didn't so we decided to take them apart to grease them...... On my XJ, it did come apart, I greased it up and pressed it back together......it held until I sold it!

Knowing now they are unithubs, I don't think I'd even try it, I've heard people doing the 2 for 1 deal from Autozone. Buy one, put it on, about 1 month later, return your original for another new one.
