As a Gm Tech. i can tell you that we pack your steering shaft full of a thick grease. Not your bearings. the steering shaft is meant to act like a shock, when the grease is not enough the shock can be felt in the wheel. Now Gm is having the dealerships replace the shafts if the vehicle is under warranty

That depends on which kind of wheel bearings. The 1994 Dakota 4X4's (and possibly a few 2wd's) came with a non-repackable, sealed hub assembly, in which case, no packing is possible. A problem with the wheel bearings in that case means replacing the entire hub assembly.For 2wd models using tapered spindles and wheel bearings, packing the bearings is the same as packing any other wheel bearings; A simple, if messy job that will be cleaner (maybe) if you wear gloves. First off, clean all traces of old grease from the bearings and races with solvent. Then inspect them for any signs of wear, heat discolouration, or other defects. If any defect is present, replace the bearing and its races; They come in matched sets, you cannot use old bearings with new races, or vice versa. That done, now its just a matter of using your hands and fingers to squeeze and pack (hence the term, 'packing') the bearings full of grease, making certain that the grease fills every nook and cranny of the bearings and their cage. That's all there is to it. Once that's done, install them properly and happy motoring.

Noplace. "Set packing", yes, in Hamlet 3,4: "This man shall set me packing." "Send packing", yes, in Henry IV Part 1 2,4: "'Faith, and I'll send him packing", and in Henry VI Part 2 3,1: "'tis politicly done, To send me packing with an host of men", and in Richard III 3,2 "Ere a fortnight make me elder, I'll send some packing that yet think not on it." But not "start packing".

Yes, you should use more packing peanuts. The more you have, the better protected is the cargo. In addition to packing peanuts, you can also use bubble wrap.

Packing is the placement of gauze or cotton into the nasal area. Packing comes in three forms: gauze, cotton balls, and preformed cotton wedges. Packing is usually coated with antibiotics and, sometimes, petrolatum.

Incorrect packing of bearing grease or incorrect torque. Also make sure to replace the bearing race, as it may be scored. CORRECT ANSWER- you need to replace the knuckle and the wheel bearing

No. Rectangular packing can be better, particularly if the overall area is rectangular.
