    Well my outer wheel bearing blew itself apart yesterday, I got new parts, got it home and started taking it apart ... the outer bearing is frozen on the spindle. What do I do now?! :eek3:

    Never had this happen, don't really want to pull the spindle and replace it ... I was hoping there was a tool for situations like this ... I know there are for bigger rigs, this is on my 95 2wd Tahoe. I know it's a truck but being a 2WD it's suspension is alot like any 70's and 80's GM passenger car front end ... just a lil bigger. Help?!

    Yup, it's welded on alright!! New rotors and 2 inch drop spindles on order. Taking next week off to replace the whole front end. God dammit!!
