Re: 4x4 front wheel bearing/hub
so i picked up a new hub today and an $18 36mm socket. as i removed the suspect hub, ball bearings and chunks of metal began to fall out. "well there's your problem right there" I cleaned it up, greased it up, and installed the new unit. what a night and day difference.
but i noticed new sound of loose metal clicking when i would stop and go and steer. i went home and jacked all 4 wheels off the ground and had my 8year old steer the wheel for me. turns out my new front brake pads are loose. they are snug in terms of the caliper squeezing them in and out, but they are loose in the sense that they slide up and down about 1/4 inch against the rotor within the caliper. both sides do it, is that normal?
