    Finishing touches... Surprisingly I ordered this more than a year ago on ECSTuning when it was unavailable and they held onto my order and shipped it recently. Pretty cool. Glad to finally have a badge on it but it looks a little weird since I'm so used to seeing it without.

                Giving the e30 some love this week. I've had a noise in the back right that has become more pronounced over time, plus the axle boots have been cracked. I took on the task of changing the rear wheel bearings and the axles out. Oh boy this was a pita that I took my time on and plugged away over the course of the week.

                Car up and getting it apart


                First hub out after serious banging with a slidehammer. I ached all over after doing this


                Driver's side hub was an absolute beast. I beat on it off and on for 2 days with the slide hammer and tried to pound it out from the backside and even had my buddy give it a go with no luck. I've always heard applying heat helps but I never took it seriously. Now I will always use it, I heated the hub up for 1 minute with a propane torch and then it came out with 5 whacks


                When this one came out part of the bearing was still attached. I read about people spending hours with a dremel but I managed to use a cutting wheel on the angle grinder to take material off and then I knocked it off with a screwdriver and hammer


                Next step, I pulled out the bearings using a bearing puller from Harbor Freight. When I first used it I didn't lubricate the threads and it worked but it was so hard going that it broke my ratchet. I use a 4 foot steel pipe for leverage so it's not a surprise.


                k, now pressing the bearing in




                Tools used from Harbor Freight:
                Bearing press - Pro-tip, lubricate the heck out of the threads. I actually stripped the first one I got removing the bearings but Harbor Freight rocks and they just swapped it out for me for free


                Big sockets for the axle nuts


                And back in the driveway
