My Repair & Advice
It went well ,I used some advice from other repairs like I had to use a bolt to bang out drum from tub. I didn't have an old one I used existing one then I ordered a new one. I think the hardest part
Was the knocking out of spider shaft from inner tub the rest was real easy,about three to four hours each way meaning take apart then put together. The best advice I can give is take it apart first then order parts,also if your doing the bearings and seal change the spider too,I mean depending on how old the unit is. Mine was 11 years old ,my spider wasn't bad ,but for 70 bucks you'll regret it if it goes bad cause you where too proud or excuse my French too cheap. Also change tub seal its5 bucks worth it. All in all,my cost was 140 dollars with shipping,runs great. That's what a repair man would charge just to come to your house.and yes a tip from other repair when you take out back shock last is swivels forward and shock comes apart,easy to put together again ,I saw two brown strips on floor didn't know what they where,then I remember the other review tip. Total time 6 hours and I'm a mechanic,imagine what repair people would charge for this good luck to all,go for it it's easy.
