Re: Europa 463 Axle Service

I am in the process of doing my driver side hub. Lost the cv joint recently, so I have been driving in rear wheel drive only. Honestly, my g drives as nice as it did in 4 wheel drive. I don't feel like tackling this job, but I know I need to get it done soon. Did you order your kit yet? From where?...

WTB 463 pre 2002 front hub/ renewed

Looking for a pre 2002 front hub assembly, complete and renewed with bearings, cvt, seals etc. I would like to just take mine off and bolt up a renewed assembly. I think this might be the easiest and fastest way to redo my front driver side hub? Would someone consider renewing one, selling me the un...

Re: 463 front axle rebuild kit

Bigred72 did you disconnect the center shaft to the front diff? or did you just drive it as is with the center diff locked. Honestly, my g drives normally with the center diff locked, I could not tell my fronts were not normal other than the noise when turning. Lets hope I make it home without any i...

Re: 463 front axle rebuild kit

Tires are dead solid,with no play back and forth. When I spin one wheel off the ground, I can hear a grinding sound when spinning it backwards, spinning it forwards does not make a sound. I will take it easy and drive 55 the 8 miles back home. If I feel something is catching and locking up, I will c...

Re: 463 front axle rebuild kit

when driving straight, the drive is normal. When making a left hand turn, I can hear a noise coming from the front end. With the center diff off, no power to either rear or front. G will just roll, even in park. As soon as I power the center diff, the rears will drive the car and act as usual.

Re: 463 front axle rebuild kit

So it's ok to drive without removing the front driveshaft in center lock only? This is currently the only way to get my g wagon to drive the 8 miles back from my mechanics shop to my garage. Or I flatbed it home.

Re: 463 front axle rebuild kit

How long can I drive my G in center diff lock only? I take it the rear wheel drive is only operational now since my front axle cv is shot. Should I take off the front drive shaft so it does not bind up the TC if something were to lock up my front hubs?

Re: 463 front axle rebuild kit

BigRed72, how long did it take you to change out your cv joint/ kingpin bearings? I have my g wagon operational on the rear driveshafts only, so I need to get the cv / bearing kit/ etc. ordered soon and changed out. So you didnt need a special socket to take the axle nut off? I was told it need some...
