Question about 1998 Ford Ranger SuperCab
On a 1998 Ford Ranger 4 x 4 do you have to replace the hub and bearing or can u just replace the bearings and if so what is the cost.......Tires are very noisy when traveling down highway anything over 20 mph...can't hear even radio so loud.
You may have to replace the hub if the races have been destroyed...they are the real shiny machined spots on which the bearings ride...if the problem went on long enough they may be bad...pitted and grooved.
