Hello,I had a top mechanic I know @ local dealership take it out for a test drive and he said he thinks it's the bearings,He even shut it off and coasted it down a hill listening and then drove it,I get a slight shimmey at times and more noise around a left hand turn.i thought there was origionally a problem with the new rotor's I just put on I thought maybe they were rubbing but he didnt see anything,when I go down the road I get like a wapp-wapp noise it almost sound like I put 35 inch mudder tires on the front end and like almost a rubbing/grinding noise.I was told I need a puller and splitter to replace the bearings,but im not sure what I would need a splitter for.Thanks Jim
after pulling front hub spindle half the bearing will be on it
you will need the splitter to go behind it to be removed
if u thinking of doing it your selflet me know and i will send u pic
Hello,I appreciate the info,I am going to do it myself and any Pic's would really help.Is the splitter you talk about something similar to using the tool when you seperate your ball joints to seperate them,that tool I think looks like a fork in a way
dont forget to take the lock ring off.
