Yeah, several members have commented on that matter, not being able to locate the seals. Timken brand makes them too, but forgot the part number.

pruietjr This was excellent. Thanks Much!

I do have a question. You said "Remember to replace the rubber seal that goes on the spindle. This prevents from water or dirt to enter into the bearing." I can't seem to find this seal at the local auto parts store or at Rockauto. Mine is missing (hence a bad bearing on the car I just bought).

Does anyone have an idea where I can buy one (short of buying a whole new spindle?

Thanks Much!

sailor Separate parts, you need the proper bearing with "tone ring" for ABS. Sensor isn't replaced unless there is a problem with that.

Seal carrier may come with assembled drums, often left off.

mickeyaaaa ok its been just over a month, new hub, spindle & seal on the offending (shake) rear left, new bearing, new tires & balance...still needs an alignment with slight pull to the right but the bearing seems to be holding up so far....

REAR ABS SENSOR RINGS faulty - anyone got spares they wanna part with?

ApriliaRyan SUre Im late to the table but wanted to add you wont need to pull off the caliper bracket, the rotor will slide right out once you tip it. I just picked up an SVT and did my rear bearings using this write up.....awesome job with the pics, details, and tools needed, saved me a ton of time.

SuperFlea Nope, no right or wrong way. The install either way/side.

razzledazzle As I mentioned earlier, I don't want to install the bearings til I'm sure I've got it right. As the pictures show, the bearing doesn't look exactly symmetric, so is their a correct way and an incorrect way to install??

SuperFlea Yes, unbalanced tires also cause the bearings to go bad from to much vibration. Look into the alignment, not for camber ware, look for tie ware.
