    Look :eek: at the DVD again. Although the rubber seal is closest to the back of the knuckle when we first put the pieces onto the axle, we further detail installing the steel ring into the back of the knuckle FIRST (with the cut on the ring at 12 o'clock), then the rubber seal, then the felt, then finally the two retainers.

    Jim, sorry about that.....luckily i got it all in right and am on to the PS. Thanks for the help though and i do keep coming back to the DVD as it helps just as much as the FSM.

    Nevertheless, sorry, my mistake.

    Jim, sorry bout all this. im a noob at birfs...one last question, i am closing in on the whole thing but i need to pull the axle out a little to get the snap ring on, can someone tell me what size bolt i can use, just need some hints on this and i should be home free.

    Rob the 12mm headed bolt on the driver's side of the engine behind the power steering pump that holds the grounding wire into the intake manifold. Any bolt on your truck with a 12mm head will work.
