    Also sorry for thread crapping about my issues. This is after all bearing tightening DIY guide.

    PPl dont normally need a balance on the rear wheels.
    but most do when buying a set of tyres, so in theory your wobble may
    return next rotation as you are again introducing a rear wheel to the front.

    Hey Darren @MudRunnerTD .
    Decided to triple check and nip up my bearing before I replace panhard bushes and fit a new draglink.
    When I took off the passenger hub I noticed a small pool of oil and/or water at the bottom. It was hard to tell whether it was more watery or more oily.
    I'm assuming its either the seal from the diff end ( if oil leak) has a weep or water may have gone in behind the hub somehow. I have done 10+ water crossings since my last re-check.
    I'm just brainstoming here mate. Thoughts ?
    In the photo you can see the small pool in front of my finger.

    Take the lowest bolt out of the bottom swivel bearing plate. If there is oil or water it should come out there. I always run a small bead of silicon between the hub and the hub lock to stop water ingress.

    @Hodge yeah take out one of the lower king pin bearing bolts and see if anything drains out. If nothing your good to go.

    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.

    Cheers fellas. Will crack one open tomorrow..
    So, let's assume it's oil.
    That's the axle seal right?
    Which will need a full bearing kit put through?

    No, it will need a new axle seal. Will and Should ate 2 different words mate 😉

    If the seal is gone and you ha e never done a rebuild then it really will make a difference. How many kms has your car done mate?
