Did the breather mod a few years ago but my passenger side axle seal has started weeping. Just wanted to double check my part numbers before I pull it apart as it's my only vehicle.

Bearing: SKF BR10
Seal: SKF 45600
Repair sleeve: Timken KWK99187
Brake pads: Powerstop 171100

I want to have the repair sleeve on hand in case there's a groove worn. I'm ordering enough parts to do both sides but just changing the passenger for side for now. Anything I'm missing?

Also, How does one set the wheel bearing preload? Or is it preset by design? (machined limit on the axle shaft)

First off there are several very good write ups. Find and Read those.
Next make sure that the bearing comes with the lock ring.
I also used a nissan seal and not a SKF one. THough in general SKF is the BEST.
Those are rear brake pads. Does your e-brake work? I found that when the axle seal leaks it coats the e-brake pads. Those should be the ones that get replaced. The e-brake is a drum brake that rides inside the disk brake rotor hat. Though I replaced my rear disk brake pads as well, it is not needed.
Not sure you can just pound a repair sleeve in there. Look into that.
Do you have tools. Other than basic hand tools you need a slide hammer, and cut off wheel.

All of my info has come from DIY threads here and on thenewx, great resources! I haven't seen any mention of wheel bearing preload though.

The SKF bearing comes with a lock ring, all of the measurements are correct so fingers crossed it all fits.

My e-brake works good, just been hearing a groaning sound from my rear passenger side when braking. Sure enough the rotor is soaked, Pads are originals and quite worn anyway so no loss there.

The speedi-sleeve makes for a nicer sealing surface if the axle shaft is grooved. Have had great results using them on crankshafts that won't seal. The ones I ordered might be a bit too wide.

Luckily, I have all the tools for the job including a press. Have quite a collection from years of wrenching on my beater cars.

im coming in with tid bits, sorry if i dont cover all. the bearings are set up as cone style if i remember right and depth of hitting against the shaft when slide on.
sliding into the housing and held together with the plate on the "hub" bolting it to the housing. that will center and set correct depth on install.

Looks pretty straight forward, thanks!

All fixed. The parts I listed above all fit great. I ended up needing the Timken redi-sleeve as my axle shaft was pitted and grooved. I ended up using a light film of red loc-tite under it for extra insurance.

Holding off on doing the drivers side as it's not leaking and I'm not yet sure how the passenger side repair will hold up.
