And I thought I was doing good by rotating the tires.

Finally picking this up again I have removed both pins but this early axle has the bushing in the top of the swivel that's inside of the housing. I can't pull the housing off because its interfering with the bushing. I can only guess that it is contributing to the slop, because it is rather sung in the swivel, but I can't tell until I get it out. It doesn't appear that I can get it out of the hole in the top of the housing.

What am I doing wrong? A couple guys said this was an easy job so I must be going at it the hard way but it seems to be the only way.

Thanks

Have you pulled out the bottom pin? Swivel seal off?

You need to remove the swivel from the axle anyway to replace the swivel seal, so get that off and the whole mess on the bench.

Both pins are out and the metal rings are off the back but the rubber seal is still in place. I'll pull the whole thing from the axle and dig deeper.

Thank you

It won't come off with the seal in place. Follow the manual.......
