Soo..since I took off the stub axles at night I didn’t notice how banged up they were. I was wondering why the nuts were already at the end of the threads... anyone have a pair they can sell me ??

Those look like they've been on and off more than a few times. How hard did the nuts come off? They're supposed to torqued to over 200 ft lbs. Did you remove the peening before taking them off? BTW, there shouldn't be any threads showing with the nuts tight.

 

You know, they almost look like someone took a torch to the nut and cut into the threads. They are supposed to have notches near the end to peen the nut though.You could always get a die and clean up the threads if you can't find any. 20mmx1.5 pitch. https://www.amazon.c...g/dp/B0007CNJ2W

 

Also IIRC 240Z axles are the same so there's that, but don't quote me. OK, just looked it up 240Z rear stub axles are the same. 

 

Man, I used to know this stuff off the top of my head, but getting old now and things get foggy.

They were already at the end of the threads when I got the car unfortunately. That’s good to know though that 240z stub axles are the same!

I just picked up one from a guy locally so he saved my butt, gave it to me for free too:) I noticed on the one he gave me that it has the dust cover and the ones that I hVe don’t though

I wrestled the farthest nut and bolt for a good 2 hours before it came out. Rust would not let the bolt slide out at all! Got tired after yanking this control arm out so I mounted stuff to see what it would look like

Going to proceed to strip arm and primer /paint it black , press in new bearings and paint stub axles while I wait for wheel studs to come in

Ugh. I got everything off the second control arm But the closest bolt to the body. The bolt is seized in the bushing collar. Heat didn’t do anything but melt out the bushing. I’m Going to try and use a sawsall on the collar and cut on both sides of the control arm

So I just noticed I got two bearings that fit and two bearings that are too big. Also the dust seal is too small:/. Did I order the right shit ?

Edit : just noticed I bought wagon dust seals lol

The red beck/arnley fit

But the ones circled are too big

Well i know the problem exists with a 521 front inner wheel bearing.... they will sell you one through every website and parts store that are wrong.....

My recommendation is clean up the old bearing and look for some numbers on it.... that's how I was able to get the correct one for the front of my truck....

I can only assume that is similar to what your dealing with..

I bet if you check the bearing that fits, it will fit on the other side too. If I recall correctly The Datsun 510 uses the same bearing for inner and outer. The Z and 200SX and early Maxima use a bigger and smaller bearing. 

I've had this issue before, but of course it's been many years since I've done one as they tend to last for 30-40 years. I feel bad that I didn't remember this and let you know.
