So my Ellis trailer has torsion axles instead of leaf springs the hubs are in need of a complete bearing and seal overhaul. The bearing buddies do not work, they leak grease all over the wheels. They're a mess. I've been thinking instead of rebuilding them in the heat and dust in Parker I'm wondering if I can just pull the whole torsion arm off and take them home and rebuild on the bench? Any thoughts?

Don't see why not. Just mark them so they go back on the spline in the same spot.

That's what I used to do with my old VW's. Mark the swing arm then remove, rebuild and reinstall.
