    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I had just pulled the drivers side apart - first time since we have had the vehicle and it has manual hubs and the previous person who pulled it apart had put the circlip in the auto hub groove.

    What I would like to know it how do you dismantle the manual hub. The manual shows a circlip...but where?

    Just want to say thank you to @MudRunnerTD for this thread. I just did my front end. It was a fun project for this quarantine time (here in our part of the world). I havenít had a chance to drive it yet, but will do soon. Hope things go well.
    Thanks again.

    Hi guys,

    Just did the passenger side swivel hub gaskets seals and new kingpin bearings. The hub seals and wheel bearings looked pretty nice and straight so repacked with grease and, while I was there, replaced the brake rotor and pads. That's on my RHD UK, 2003 GR Y61 (or GU Y61). Followed these gold mine instructions and everything was as easy as saying hello. So big thanks to the author of this thread . Hopefully will do the drivers side tomorrow and the rear discs and pad next week end.

    Now, when I removed the kingpins, I messed up at some point and lost the bottom adjusting shim. Dunno if I'd thrown it in the bin with some greasy paper towels or what but I just couldn't find it, and it drove me crazy. So I ended up with only one left... So I decided to fit both kingpins without the shims. Obviously, will have to fit the drivers side without those shims for "good" balance. Other than that, I guess I did everything "right". Question is: will that affect in anyway the driving as there will be no shims after the full rebuild?

    Thanks guys for bringing some light here!

    Leave them as you found them if you can. But you are putting in new king pin bearings so the shims required could well be different now anyway.

    I would leave the others as you find them and after you have it back together just ensure the wheel turns without restriction. The possibility is that removing the shim may make the King pin bearing tighter clamped down so the steering will be heavier.

    Some take out a shim if the get the dreaded wheel wobble to some success.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm half way of rebuilding the drivers side, managed to remove everything but was harder though. Looks like this side was never been touched before. Snapped the abs sensor bolt but managed to remove the sensor without damage. Will need to remove the thread bit left in the knuckle. The swivel hub itself is nasty inside with lots of grease and muddy mix.
    Lots of work ahead tomorrow.

    In the mean time, while I finished fitting the nearside I turned the troll back to get the offside near the kerb (working in front of me house lol). But I could already feel a huge improvement while turning the steering wheel and that is with the passenger side wheel bearing completely loose. When I raised the wheel off the road and checked the wheel, there was a big play when moving the wheel top to bottom. So now parts are removed and now need to get rid of that rust and make it again again nice and clean.

    Will update to tell how things went after a test drive on the highway and see if it's wobble free without shims. Cheers

    So I thought I would add these pics to this thread. Currently doing front wheel bearings only on the GUIV. I bought the bearings from the 4WD Shed off ebay. They came with a seal too.

    The back seal gets destroyed when removing so was keen to get them too. Well this is the seal that turned up.....

    It seems that at some point some smart bloke have merged to 2 seals needed into 1!!









    The new seal may well be 2 seals conveniently pressed into each other but I'm not going to risk splitting them for the sake of confirming its 1 or 2. This is an upgrade.

    Also... those bloody M4 screws would have to be the Softest metal I have ever found in a screw. I will swap them out for some M4 Allen key jobs only because I have some. M4 x 10mm is what you need and a Phillips Head would be great.
