    Having never done rear wheel bearings, I really have nothing to offer to that conversation.

    The fact that you both were defeated by parts that were seized together speaks volumes.

    I'm wondering if seized is the wrong word to describe the condition, fused maybe more accurate and indication that the axle and hub are not viable and require replacement with a good used hub, axle and brake shield.

    Already have a new hub kit. We will be replacing the axles and upright/brake shield and pull the whole assembly out by the axles once we set up another tech day. Corrosion probably got to the spline surfaces and rusted together. I would also suggest anti-seize on teh splines of the new axles.

    According to Joe, he's been driving the car with the red neck yacht club through some high water. Hell, I even had some water in one of my original bearings.

    I'm definitely greasing my axle splines now that they're both exposed. I'm not taking any chances for when I need to do this again!

    Anti-seize will last longer. Grease will dry out over time.

    I just read that. I would love to help out, but I will be in Daytona playing bumper cars in my miata.

    Too late for one side. Already greased and reassembled. I’ll have to trust the grease for now. It already had 50K miles without grease and still pounded out easily with a plastic mallet so I think it’ll be okay.
