Thanks for the advice for the bearing.
I went back to the shop and bought the "older" one with the stepped inner
outside race, based on your collective experience....And that's what I
needed. So the FAG catalogue is unclear at best, since I apparently should
have used a non-stepped bearing. So you guys saved me having to figure out
how to get to the parts shop from a remote workshop on xmas-eve (when all
was quiet) having just immobilised the car. Ta
Total cost was $57CAD for the bearing and $9CAD in take-out Cappuccino's for
the guys who let me use their workshop and press.
I really should get it aligned, but since the arse end is usually sliding
about in this weather anyway........
So another thing to put in the wiki, when I get a moment...

Cheers for your speedy replies boys,
Looks like I picked up the wrong bearing this arvo.
I should be able to correct that 1st thing Monday and get it rolling again
I have access to a slide hammer, a press and lift so that should go fairly
The car has 150k miles on it but had a bang on the corner opposite the dud
rear wheel bearing
I just had that pulled properly and the car realigned, so that might explain
the wear at the back if the car was a bit cock-eye.
FYI I have installed the Bernie Bar and have most of the bits for my version
of the Chuck Bar, post strut tower pull
I will put pics in the KB / Wiki as soon as I have finished, have time
(involving hiring 2 people to lessen the load), have leant the wiki markup
and have reregistered for the wiki list.
For now though, alea jacta est...
Thanks again and merry xmas to you and yours
