Default 1999 Mustang rear wheel bearing replacement! please help!!

what's up guys?! i just recently got my '99 Mustang, i love it but the person that owned it before didnt really took care of it, i changed the spark plugs, wires, and kinda fixed the cold air intake, but i have a squeaky noise that comes from the right rear wheel, i've asked people and some say the noise comes from the bearings, i'm the kind of person that learns really fast and since i don't have the money to take it to the shop, i have decided to do it myself, so if somebody knows how to replace the bearings, i would really appreciate the help! i have tools but i don't know if i need something in special. thanks for the help.

Welcome to the show.:kooky: You will find that this is one of the best forums out there.

You will need basic tools, and some quality gear oil (motorcraft or royal purple), and I would pick up an O-ring kit while you are at it. To begin, put the rear of the car on jack stands, and chock block the front wheels.

1. Remove the rear wheels, and take the rear brakes apart. Be sure to make a hanger for your calipers so they are not hanging by the brake lines. Don’t want to tear them.

2. Next, remove the rear differential cover and let the oil drain out.

3. Remove the pinion shaft lock bolt. (I would get a new one for the install; otherwise you need to get locktight.)

4. Remove the pinion shaft.

5. Push the axle shafts inboard.

6. Remove the U-washer

7. Remove the rear brake anti-lock sensor. DO NOT FORGET!!!!

8. Remove the axle shaft

9. Remove bearings.

Be sure to pack the new bearings with brake grease and lubricate! It can be a little tricky, but if you take your time and pay attention to the way it is set up, you should be fine! Get a Haynes manual, as they give you a few tips, and tell you any special torque settings for bolts.

Hope this helps…

Here you go...This is a tech article about swapping gears, but it has the necessary info for taking your axles out. Even has pictures. It will make this project a breeze.

I recommend getting Timken bearings when replacing your old ones. Autozone or Advanced Auto carries them. I don't remember which one.
