Hub/wheel getting hot...After lift ....

So now after my 37;s are on, my drivers side hub/wheel is getting hot....Only difference is, i had to use the Skyjacker SS brake lines ....I was thinking maybe the caliper was grabbing the rotor and causing the heat....Maybe i didnt bleed it enough? No pulling brakes feel great...

Brad told me to check my wheel bearings, maybe the load of the 37 is stressing it....

All my tools are Dodge/chevy so ran out to get the spindle nut socket and of course its the wrong size... (manual hubs)...

But anyway the bearings feel great, preload seems ok....Maybe needs to be a little tighter...

Any ideas? things to watch for?

Re: Hub/wheel getting hot...After lift ....

Any endplay on the wheelend? Spins free when you jack that tire up? And like too hot to touch?

Re: Hub/wheel getting hot...After lift ....

By chance do you have an IR heat gun? I would try to read the temps of each component to try and determine the source. If you dont have a fancy heat gun, try going for a short drive and CAREFULLY test the temp of various parts. The hottest part is your problem. Heat will eventually soak through all connected components, so keep the drive as short as possible while still allowing it to heat up some. Im sure more help can be provided if we know what parts causing a problem....

No endplay....Spins fine no dragging or binding... Yes the reason i knew there was a issue, is i just painted wheels and actualy smelled like a drying paint smell... Touched and yes to hot to keep hand on hub,,,,
