Wheel bearings on 99 Suburban 4x2

I went to replace the rotors, pads, and calipers on my 99 Suburban; when I jacked the truck up I notice the there was to much play on the driver wheel. I took the cotter pin out and the castle nut off and the front wheel bearing was stuck to the back wheel bearing (it had no bearings in it, just the casing). At that point I decided to replace the front and back bearings. When I bought the bearings they came with a "sleeve".



If I use the "sleeve" they came with the sleeve sticks out like this



Did the bearings come with those "sleeves" in case you were replacing the bearings only and not the rotors because the new rotors have the sleeves in them? It looks like this when I don't use the sleeves.



Also should I use the green band that I took off my old rotors that seem to hold the rear bearings in. The new bearings didn't come with one.



Thanks in advance.

hey there,

the "sleeves" are called bearing races. You should replace them along with the new bearings (you use a punch to tap them out of the hub/rotor assy). if the new rotor came with new races than you should not have to install the races that came with your new bearings. The green band is called a wheel seal and should be replaced. If you were very careful removing the old one you could reuse it if you HAD to, but it should be replaced. Do you know how to pack the bearing with grease and how to adjust the bearing pre-load? If not let me know. good luck on your brake/bearing job!!

Thanks for the reply / letting me know the correct names for those parts. As far as packing the bearing with grease and how to adjust the bearing pre-load that was my next question. Thanks again.
