Need info about wheel hub replacement.

I have a wheel bearing that is bad on my 2000 gt. It's the right front one. Anyway I ordered a new hub assembly but I need to know the torque spec for the 36 mm nut. Thanks

Well all the auto parts stores around here only have a 150 max torque wrench to rent. I was really not looking forward to buying one. Oh well it's better than paying some guy 300 bucks to do it. Thanks for your help guys.

No, I wish we did. Before I left Florida in June, I had a Northern Tool about 10 minutes from my house. That used to be my go to store whenever I needed tools of any kind. They are just as good as HF. I can still internet order from both from here.

Well Harbor Freight is starting to piss me off. I've purchased two items from them in the past two weeks that have been DOA. First it was a 20 ton bottle jack that didn't work right out of the box, and then today I bought a die grinder that worked for about ten minutes before it broke. It wouldn't be a huge deal, because I expect this sort of thing from HF, but it is a 3 1/2 hour round trip to the nearest store!

The reason I don't bother going there lol. Only time I went was to go get a free tarp haha. Sucks its so far for you.

You need to know the rules, to break the rules

Well in my years I have had issues too, but it is always nice knowing you can just take it back for an exchange. For me that was not an issue, be it a 3 hr round trip that would be a different story. I guess I would opt for internet buying from them, so that it does not cost for your travel.

But these days it is the same with just about any product and resource you buy it from, quality control is not what it used to be and the majority of all tools these days are made elsewhere too.

HF is one of those places you buy things that you either don't expect to use too often or don't mind if they get stolen from the trunk of your car.
A cheap "mechanics tool set" is great for the trunk of your car in case you break down.
Not so much for your primary tool set though.

There are lots of exceptions, their aluminum low profile floor jack for one.
The blue one.

Best to read the reviews, some of which are brutal so obviously they don't censor them.

Oh, replacing the wheel bearing is candy. Hardest part is getting the old one out which will likely separate and fall apart when you try.

Well I ordered the hub from AM. I got a breaker bar and jack stands at harbor freight in town. Ordered a new axel nut from late model restoration. Ordered new 300 ft/lb torque wrench from Amazon and a 36mm socket as well. Should be ready to go when it all gets here.

On a side note I have the sr performance lowering springs for the 79-04 gt,Mach 1, 93-98 cobra that I never put on I need to sell. I'll take 100.00 for them if anyone wants them.

UPDATE

I exchanged the die grinder for another one at HF and it works excellent!
I have about 25 or so hours of use and not a problem.

Just thought I'd let Y'all know!
