Replacing bad bearings with a "bearing repair" setup...got it from Napa part #pr1563...was told these would replace stock bearings and move the bearing approximately 1/2 inch towards wheel. One of my axles was kinda worn so they said the bearing would be on a new location. Tried putting these in and it won't go...now its stuck and can't get it out..lol...any ideas????

We call those 'axle savers'. If they get cocked they can be a bear to get out. Try a slide hammer.

Try using a BAS, Big Ass Socket. Or, here's an idea, a bearing driver.;)

Your best bet is to replace the whole axle with a better one. Try a Ford 8.8.
