          Comments about National Taper Bearing Set:

          The metal cage was a plus in my experience, the poly cage can be torqued out of round when doing the initial setting of the bearings. Truck is running straight and true. Be careful using the old race to install the new one. It goes in a bit far and if you don't have a large seal puller it could be difficult to get out. Use the thin side to tap the new one in, if it get stuck you can go from the other side and have a shelf to tap it out.

                                  I'm happy to help, Matt! This National Taper Bearing Set (Part No. A-18) is a front differential bearing for your 1998 Chevrolet Blazer 4.3L V6. This is not the correct part to replace your front wheel bearing. Your vehicle utilizes a unitized hub and bearing assembly such as MOOG Part No. 513124 for a 4WD or MOOG Part No. 513200 for a RWD.

                                  You will not need to replace any seals and the unit requires no grease. If you have 4WD, you will need to replace your spindle nut. Advance Auto Parts offers two options from Dorman; Part No. 05177 or Part No. 615-095 for a distorted thread.

                                  I'm happy to help, Bryon! The bearing does not have to be machine pressed into the differential. You may need a special tool to install it properly. Some other vehicle owners have used wood blocks, pipes or sockets. I suggest purchasing a repair manual for your vehicle for more detailed instructions on the replacement, Haynes Part No. 24071.
