I have been doing some work on my ranger lately and it seems like its one thing after another. First I had to redo the rear breaks due to a failed break cylinder. Then I had to replace the rear differential gasket and oil. Then someone stole my lugs on one of my rear wheels, and that damaged the wheel and one of the wheel studs. Now, after all this the last few months, I'm pretty sure the wheel incident fucked up my rear wheel bearings. So I put it up on jacks and started to pull apart the diver side rear breaks and wheel assembly (it was the side that was making the most noise). When I rotate the rotor by hand it makes an obvious scraping noise, so I'm fairly certain this is the culprit. The problem is, my Haynes manual doesn't talk about the rear bearings or axle at all. Says if your going to do anything to it, you should have a dealer do it. Is this really the case? I am a fairly smart guy, and am a submarine mechanic, so I feel like I should be able to tackle this job with a little help. I browsed though some YouTube videos to try to get some info, but it appears as though my wheel assembly is different than the models shown. I have a 2004, 4.0, 4x4. Any help you guys can give would be great. I already pulled apart the rear driver side, but I am taking a break to get some homework done. Again, if anyone can shed some light on a good reference for the work or info that would be great.
