    Labor cost for pressing axle bearings??

    A 60-to-80-ton press seems like a lot on till you start pressing Dana 60-70 series bearings. Of Course, the shop I retired from we pressed on bearings for a wide variety of applications. The extra capacity really helped on those stubborn bearing removals.

    Labor cost for pressing axle bearings??

    Its not the removal that requires the greatest pressure. You can stress relieve the old inner race and retainer on removal It's the required force to press the tapered bearing and retainer on.

    Labor cost for pressing axle bearings??

    Indianapolis area the cost of pressing axle bearings each will run you anywhere from 75 to $100.

Those hydraulic presses cost upwards of 1200 to...

    Rock Auto - has 1973 Brake Calipers in stock - Cardone

    Stay away from Cardon, I agree w/ @mrfury68 and getting them warranted is even worst. You can rebuild your own w/ 1973 Dodge Challenger parts. See @Ayliar post on his Introducing a 1970 300 TNT convertible thread for details on how to rebuild it.

    After 4 years I think I finally found my problem.

    If you look at the bleeder screws both calipers are from the side. The actual mechanics and dimensions of the seals, caliper piston, Caliper pin hardware and dust boot are the same. I used the Challenger Calipers as a doner for seals, pistons and mounting hardware for the 70 300 calipers.

    After 4 years I think I finally found my problem.

    Here you are. The guide pins are identical in length. The caliper to the left is a 1973 Challender while the caliper to the right is a 70 Chrysler 300. The Challenger guidepins are shown installed in photo #3

    Can someone tell me if I did this right?

    Those calipers pictures are in fact the original style OE calipers used on c bodies in 1970. The relief cut that you're seen in the photos in is the retainer silencer has worn into the caliper housing. This style caliper housing was used from 1970 till the end of the fuselage model run in 73...

    Any opinion on whitewall versus blackwall

    I am for the white wall look. For me the white wall accents the body lines.

    Time to replace shocks - recommend?

    I just installed KYB's on last month. The ride does stiffen a little w/ them. For ease of front shock installation remove the tire and wheel. Support the lower control arm w/ a floor jack and remove the bolt securing the brake line to the body. Separate the upper ball joint and lower the lower...
