Rear Axle Stubb
#1
last year we replaced rear axle bearing, pass side. But the stubb had worn with the broken bearings.
I see on ebay you can buy a new bearing kit with replacement stubb..........how can the old stubb be removed and can it be done on ramp without the whole axle being dropped?

Hope some one can help.
thanks Smile

Can you put a link on to the bearing with stub axle ? I have seen them with a hub which is the recommended way to replace them but never with a stub axle. If the stub axle is splined you would need to beat the old one out from the front with a big hammer and a bit of heat wouid help so make sure you have a new one before destroying the old one. Knock the new one in from the rear (OOooh missus) sorry went all Frankie Howerd there and pull it in with the hub nut and hub. If your vehicle is solid on axle stands there would be no problem leaving the axle on you would only need one wheel jacked up. Here's a pin if it's this kind of set up.
So where does this bit go then ?

videos on ebay of doing this. I suspect leaving it on the car would be the best way to do it although be sure to mark it all up before doing it or youll bugger up ride height.

I really wouldnt be too scared of dropping the axle its not as massive a job as it sounds and removing the stub looked like a royal pain in the arse to me + parts werent all that cheap so went for the 299.99 replacement option.

i did my swap for the first time last weekend.

You can't affect the ride height unless you move the torsion bars, you will not be touching them so no problem there. The stub axle is just a round pin so no need for any location worries.

Thanks for reply, we done the job last year but did not bother replacing the steel stubb.

How do we remove this stubb is what I would like to know

Right , sorry to all concerned I got the wrong end of the stick thinking you were doing the wheel bearing. I agree with Top drive that I would rather replace the axle. The stub still appears to be an interference fit so you would have to get something to pull it out with some brute force and ignorance like a slide hammer with grips or something with a hook to go in behind it and pull it. If your bearing is alright you could buy the shaft on it's own for £30

@ ffrenchie,
I also thought he was talking about the stub axle as in wheel bearing. 


To remove the "Axle Shaft" you will need a special tool as shown in the video link.

The only other way is to remove the axle from the car and dismantle it like the Russian guys do, some heat and a big hammer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIQVIJ8zPfE  (At 4:45 it shows the axle being taken apart)

The Russians also alter the trailing arms and fit different bearings that are much sturdier but you can obviously skip this part and use standard bearings.
