Pictures to follow when the camera charges:

Truck started growling when riding. I already knew I needed balljoints, but no idea about the bearing. I pulled it apart, and it had gotten so hot that my yellow o-ring was starting to melt. Truck never pulled or anything, and even when yanking on the tire, no play in the hub, even with it out. Only indication was a growl that started about 2 weeks ago. :eek:

y do you hate them? the bearing gave you more than ample notice,that it was going bad,hence the growl. what did you want it to do? call you on the phone.

LOL, they make a kit to fix that, but its not cheap so I,ll stick to unit bearings. Besides there easy to change and my price on them is cheap so I really dont mind. I can tell ya most all cars and trucks have gone to units, even 2 wheel dive trucks have them in the front now, and even if you could greese them , doesnt mean they wont go bad.
