    Default Front Axle install - hub

    I am just finishing the installation of my reluctor rings. I am reinstalling the hub and can't remember how far it seats in the hub. I installed the old axle bolt to pull the axle tight into the hub but I am not sure it is fully seated.

    Pics below show how it is sitting now.

    The axle has no adjustment, when the bolt is torqued it is set to the correct depth, unless there is interference in the splines, they need to be clean and undamaged. The reluctor ring should be directly under the sensor hole if placed correctly. the picture looks about right, if in doubt check the other side by removing the axle bolt on that side.

    Unfortunately the other side is apart as well. I will look when it goes back together. I just don't remember being able to see the reluctor ring from the back side of the hub so clearly. I remember having to take the speed sensor off to get a good look so I am doubting myself.

    Any other input or confirmation is welcome.

    Thanks!

    Is the sealing ring in place, where axle meets the hub?

    That sealing ring may have fallen out in pieces when you took it apart, so it may not look familiar to you...

    Thanks all! I am pretty sure it is all back together properly and the pictures I posted are the way it seats. I did replace those hub seals. No more ABS lights and cruise works nice and consistently instead of surging the whole time.
