Hey guys something I dont properly understand is whether the washer spacer in the top left corner of the image that comes with some wheel bearing kits is actually required for a GU patrol?

I don't see the washer in my Haynes manual and I haven't used it in the past however when I've had my bearings replaced by mechanics they seem to use the washer..?

Check the factory service manual, rather than Haynes. The GQ manual shows a washer that matches.

The GU uses a Wheel Bearing Lock Nut and Lock Washer (it has lots holes around it for a couple of screws) in the GQ they used a Lock Washer which was between the two Adjusting Nuts and was bent over to stop the Nuts from becoming lose in Manual Hubs. They also used the Lock Nut and Lock Washer in GQ's if they where fitted with Auto Hubs so your right you don't need it.

It is a common mod to change the bent washer with the Lock Nut/Washer if you have manual Hubs.

Cheers mate I thought that might have been the case.

I'll remove them tomorrow.
