HEY GUYS I NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE!!!

ok let me tell you first what i been doing with my truck. i noticed some wobble on my left front wheel and decided to take it off. rotor, caliper, all assembly and when i get to the wheel bearing OMG!!! i couldnt believe what i see. the outer wheel bearing race got stuck in the spindle bolt so hard. the only thing i could do was using a grinder to cut it off. but here its the thing, i went too far in some point and i messed up with the bolt so now i need to replace it and also i need the tool to take it off. it has a hexagonal slot but its big size. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

I am unclear about what you need to replace, the spindle??

There is a diagram here for the 1999 2WD front wheel assembly, scroll down to see it: The Ford Ranger Front Suspension

Just past 1/2 way down

mmm i think so but you guys use so many terms for every single thing lol. in spanish we call it eje (axle) its the thread bolt where you attach the rotor with it.

Just post the part number from above link, 9th picture/diagram down, i.e. #3 is the spindle, the "axle" is part of this is not a replaceable part, you need to get the whole assembly.

I'm willing to bet that you'll have better much buying a set if lift spindles cheaper than a new OE spindle. Junk yard will be your best bet for an OE will be used at a junk yard
