as u guys or some of u guys may know, i've been asking around about changing the front wheel bearings n all today me and my brother decided to change one of em since we were home all day n had nothing to do......wen we got down to the bearing i was sooooooo mad :mad: cuz the P.O.S. slipped right off the stub axle wit 0.000% resistance!!!!! n after that i put on the new hub n bearings and went for a test drive and to my delight the noises have slightly gone down since we replaced the less damaged hub some time this weekend if mother nature gives up a break we will get down n dirty again and do the other side!:D :D

ALL repairs done!
it took me 5 days of working in the freezing cold but it was worth it......i FINAALY changed my rusted backing plate and @ the same time changed the left rear wheel bearing. the bearing didnt need replacing but since i took out the hub it was best i replaced my ebrake works finanlly so i can get my e30 certified with no problems...NOW on to the mods!!!!*th-up*
