G35x sedan
Thanks! I just did both of my front ones again and rebuilt my calipers.

I'm working on two more diys:
1. Opening hood when stuck closed
2. Repairing leaking transmission lines.

Hope to have them up in the next few weeks.

Contrary to the rather ambiguous torque specs given in the beginning of this tutorial, the correct factory torque specification can be found the the FSM, Front Axle section, page FAX-16.

The correct spec is 92 ft.lbs.



To clarify the ambiguous value given for the front brake caliper torque member, the correct spec can be found in the FSM, Brake section, pages BR-38,40,42, and 45.

The correct torque spec is 98 ft.lbs.

Thumbs up 2008 G35x Wheel Bearing Replacement

I had a bad front left bearing after about 80K miles. Found this thread and decided to replace it myself. While I haven't done a repair this extensive on my car yet, the DIY made it seem very straightforward. Ordered a Timken HA590125 from amazon and got to work. While the DIY is missing some pictures, I found everything to be fairly easy - the only issue I had was the order of the shoe removal vs caliper removal. I had to remove the caliper first, then take the shoe off. Other than that, it was fairly easy. Getting the hub off took a bit of time as it was rusted on pretty good, but slow persistence with the hammer and lots of pb blaster got it off.

Thanks to DMG311 for the clear instructions! I LOVE not having to shell out 5-600 per wheel for these types of repairs as I now feel very confident I could do brakes/calipers/rotors/bearings on any tire.

Just an FYI to anyone doing this... be wary of that ABS bolt! Last night I replaced the driver's front hub and the ABS bolt head snapped off with almost no force whatsoever. Job that should've taken 1hr or less took about 3 hrs.

Also, don't forget that on the G35S RWD the fronts don't have an axle nut

for the 07 G35S I used the timken hub Timken HA590376 ~$130.00. Note: the Arrow on the back of it points UP. doesn't mention that in the install instructions in the box...

You can also look at the little stamped sheet metal piece that goes around the ABS ring, it has 2 cutout holes so that it can go in either knuckle and still accept the ABS sensor. I was fortunate enough to not have an issue with the sensor bolt, but I had my EZ-Out just in case.​​​​​​​
