since i have to swap the 4 lug hubs back on the front of the 84 it would be smart to put in new wheels bearings while i am there. are there any differences between flatty and widebody front wheel bearings?

no i dont, i have the service manual but havent looked yet. i am praying there is no difference in the spindles. keep in mind this is the first flatty i have ever messed with the front hubs on so its all uncharted waters for me.

look how small these are, thats a PENNY in the pic for size comparison...
