Are axle assemblies(bearing & seal installed)for the m226 available?
I found theses part #'s 2022436-1 2022436-2 within the forum
they both come up "not found" on any parts dealers
wasnt able to find a nissan oem axle assembly either
thanks,Ive found the oem assemblies for $380-$400 each.
I was hoping to find the dana/spicer set that are $180 each for titan but not available for x
Im probably going to replace bearings/seals on my axles instead
cant justify the cost just to make it easy
It's not a terrible job. I recommend a dremel to cut the lock collar and bearing race off. More precise than a drill.
It can be done with a pipe and a sledge, heating the lock collar and a lot of sweat. It's also a good excuse to invest in a harbor freight press. I'd worry about damaging the seal when using a hammer to assemble.
If you're installing speedi-sleeves, this fitting from Home Depo is the perfect driver for pressing them on.
I also recommend buying one speedi-sleeve even if your not using them (or 3 if you are). It makes a good guide-sleeve for installing the seal. First put the seal on the extra speedi-sleeve, slide the seal/sleeve assembly over the axle shaft, then slide the seal from the sleeve to the axle.
Doing it that way pretty much assures that you won't crease the seal lip when pushing it on the larger diameter seal surface.
