ya i have all of the tools and i do have enough money to order the marlin kit but that will pretty much tap me out. so i was just trying to save a few bucks but the more i think about it the less i want to tear it apart next year and redo it because i went the cheap wayYou said money is tight so you can get a set of wheel bearings from the auto parts store and still end up saving money.
Funny I just ordered the Marlin kit a few hours ago, but If $$ was a big issue it can be done cheaper. Make sure you have the correct tools; snap ring pliers, 54mm socket, brass drift, etc. It will make your life much easier.
