Bump.


If you've got a wheel bearing going out, be sure to replace it before it destroys anything around it that happens to be quite expensive!

No doubt!

My wife's WRX apparently had some bearing damage (from sliding into a curb last winter). The damaged bearing must have suddenly started falling apart as it was found during scheduled dealer maintenance. It was bad enough that the dealer was insisting on replacing the bearing and the steering knuckle. Apparently it was pretty gnarled up and had nearly 1" of wobble at the tire. I would have done the work myself if I was in town. $800 in parts and labor, I was pissed when I found out how much she had to pay!!!

Ouch.

We had a customer who rode around on a bearing until it ate the hub, part of the axle, and ruined a knuckle...luckily we had some used parts from part outs so it wasn't to expensive.

I priced those parts new the other day just so I would have a ball park if we had to get new ones at some point...:crazy:

$80 + 1 hour of labor to replace the bearing came out a LOT cheaper.

Shot you a response about 10:30 this morning.

You should receive the bearing Saturday according to USPS, Monday if they do not meet their 2 day time frame.
