Replaced driver and passenger front wheel/spindle bearings. Bearing races were still in hub, checked them and they appeared ok. Cleaned inside of hub greased and packed bearings and reinstalled into hub. Installed grease seal with flat side facing outward (as instructed by auto part store) onto the spindle then installed hub/rotor. Tightened spindle nut then backed off and repeated three times. Drove for about 30 minutes then repeated. Then reinstalled castle style nut cover and cotter key. After putting about 500 miles on the truck I'm getting vibration from the front of the vehicle on non highway roads when hitting bumps or uneven areas. New shocks within 10,000 miles, tie rods and stabilizer joints within 30,000 miles. Greased ball joints while tires were off. Front end was just aligned and tires are in good shape. I'm a certified A&P (airframe and power plant)mechanic on helicopters so technical jargon is welcomed. Needing to know if I did this correctly. I have done bearing jobs multiple times but on 4wd vehicles
have the same problem?
