New Snap-on specialty tool makes fast work of removing/installing GM axle hub bearings
There are millions of GM trucks on the road today. Many of those see hard work used in the construction, road building, gas/oil and landscaping trades among many others.
Such work leads to replacing hubs, seals and axles as one of those inevitable repairs. Those types of repairs require some special tools, one being a hub spindle socket.
