    I have 73,000 miles on my 2005 Colorado, and my rear u-joints are failing also. Don't they usually last longer than that? They are all highway miles pretty much.

If you have never done a hub assembly it would probably take about an hour or two for the first then considerably quicker and those usually run 300 to 400 each u joints about the sam time and around 10 to 40 each

2005 F-150 sounds like front wheel bearing is bad. turn to the left and sound is bad. turn to the right and no noise


Looks like it's time for a right wheel bearing, or however many there are in the hub. I'm assuming you do not have a 4 wheel drive. Remember, if it makes noise when turning left, you are "loading" the right wheel bearing. ( Shifting more weight to the side inside your turn). Think this way. When turning left at a higher speed, the left tire might even come up off the ground! That puts all the weight on the right. If you've 4 wheel drive, could also be c.v. joints, or universal joints.

Remove Steering Knuckle from vehicle
Remove Wheel Hub Bearing Assy from Knuckle
R&R Ball Joint

You can do yourself,BUT may need to
have the joint pressed out and back in,
IF you can not borrow the tools or rent

I would take the knuckle to an auto parts
store that could do it for you

I would not pay someone to pull the knuckle

Do both sides

Also flush Power Steering,Drain Trans 2 or 3 times etc,
while your involved.

I have a vibration in the drivers side front end..wheel bearing??


check the wheel bearing for play, just Rock the wheel, if the hub bearing is defective u will fell it, the other thing that can cause this is the CV joint being worn out due to a torn boot and the joint running dry

I have a ford explorer 2004 /2005, and is given this heavy noise at the front wheel while the there is an increase in speed,what are the signs of a hub bearing, because i am suspecting the front hub...


The best way to check is to lift the corner of the vehicle clear f the ground and then with a trolley jack lift the lower wishbone to put pressure on the suspension spring. This removes any force on the ball joints and bearings associated with the wheel hub. Grab the wheel 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock and rock the wheel from side to side to side. If there is any slack or minor play you will feel it first and possible see and hear it. Now take the wheel in the 6 o'clock and noon positions and and again check for play. Now remove the wheel and apply the rocking motions again to the naked hub. You should be able to see any fault with the steering knuckle, the wishbone control arm ball joints and bushes along with any play in the hub bearing. The bearing should run smooth and you should neither feel or hear any roughness from the bearing. If there is a lot of play detected try this: Remove the locking pin on the main bearing nut and then tighten the nut until free rotation of the hub begins to become stiff. Now loosen the main nut by two flats only and refit the locking pin. Refit the wheel. When driving, a worn bearing is indicated by a persistent whining growl. On front wheels the noise often gets worse during a turn as the weight of the vehicle is transferred. While the wheel is off check the condition of the brake rotor ensuring there are no warps or cracks. A damaged rotor is indicated often by a thump thump sound front he wheel and this is accentuated and felt through the brake pedal when the brakes are applied

Side to side wheel play


It could be an indication of a bad wheel bearing assembly. Did you check the lug nuts to be sure they are tight? It could also be the tie rod assembly. I would take off the wheel and try to move the just the hub assembly. Do you hear any screeching/squealing noises? Any popping while you are driving? Are your tires wearing? All these are classic signs of a bad wheel bearing. Any decent tire/auto shop can put your car on a lift and check the wheel bearings.
