Drone dog is on a distinguished road

ok, got it all done. took about 4 hours including a half hour at Auto ZOne... twice. i used a 24" breaker bar and a 1-3/4 socket to get the axle bolt off. it was a bear but it broke free. that was the only thing i had an issue with getting off. i just backed off the 3 bolts that hold the assembly on about 6 turns and then popped them all once with a 2# hammer. after that i used a tie-rod separator bar to get the bearing assembly off. the universal was also worn badly so i replaced it while i was there. All put back together and everything seems fine. better yet i check the left side and the wheel does not wobble at all so i assume it is good to go. the universal also was tight. So back in business in about 4 hours. Not too bad. thanks for the help and suggestions.
