Like so many things we do to these trucks, nothing goes according to plan.. Check out the condition of this lower knuckle bearing cap 43232-60020.

Compared to the passenger side.

Also, is this knuckle bearing race supposed to sit so proud?

I have to agree with you on CruiserParts. Every used product I’ve ordered has been delivered late in poor packaging and is marginally serviceable.. rusty, pitted, bent etc…

This is what happens when the bearing is not properly set.

All cleaned up and centered. Just waiting now for my new knuckle bearing cap. I’m glad I am doing this knuckle rebuild. I caught the loose bearing before it did more damage.

Also, the bearing race does sit proud.…
