Why is it wheel bearings that are less than a year old
Packed in grease are fucked
And ones out of a parts diff that has been laying around for who knows how long
And has every seal in it shot with hi miles
Looks more like gear lube than grease look like new
Looks like I'm useing more of it than the knuckles now
Oh yea remember the bug thing trailjunky had its a diff from that abortion

marlin crawler has a axle tube seal that is the bomb for keeping gear oil outta the knuckle balls and trail gear bearings bring the suck

your wiper seals actually sealing? had good luck with the longfield seals with the trail gear retainer plates. housing isn't bent causing the seals to leak gear oil in? you can remove your shafts I assume? I ran the marlin crawler rebuild kit bearings and had good luck.

Actually forgot to pack the knuckle last time
Did the longfield but didn't have enough Molly grease
And was just going to pack it later
But moved had a heart attack kind of forgot
And it's the wheel bearings that are done still packed in grease
Look like they were ran dry
The wheel bearings in a old leaky diff look mint that had mostly gearlube
In them

Broke the Yukon knuckle bearings long time ago
The timken ones held up better
Reused them after breaking a knuckle
and used marlin axle seals the knuckles have no soup in them
The wheel bearings in the old leaking axle that had no grease in them
look like new and there koyo wonder if they might actually be original
We will see if they hold up

Ya I believe koyo are the original. I ran the tg kit for some time. They were wearing funny and the steering was loose. Put the yukon kit in and it tightened everything up

Koyo bearings are GOOD.
