Re: 5Ktq-Gremlins

>From my reading of your description and the reviewing the family photos
album, it looks like you're talking about the wheel bearing housing,
Cassidy.  They're 443 505 431 B for the left side and 432 B for the right.
I don't see a separate part for just a bushing.  The housing, as I
understand it, includes the hub.  You'd want bearings too, if my review of
the pictures is correct.  I've not worked on this part of my '87 5kcstq
yet, but the squeaks coming from there when everything dries out for
several days indicate I'll have to soon.
