    FSM abbreviation... "SST"?

    I was looking at the section in my FSM about replacing a wheel bearing, and it tells you to use the "SST". What the hell is that? Specialized Service Tool? Specific Service Tool? Anyone know?
    I'm not sure if I'll have the tools to do the job or not, especially since I don't think I have this mysterious "SST".

    Not sure what it means but you need a hydraulic press to replace that.

    Well I was told it means "special service tool", and I certainly don't have one. I don't have a hydraulic press either. I'll be stopping at a couple local shops tomorrow. I'd do it today but I have a job interview in an hour.

    Any local car shop should be able to press it out for a minimal charge for you, especially if you have most of the work done.

    And yes, SST = Special Service Tool.
