I have a 96 GMC Sierra Z71 and it shakes on and off like your going over multiple speed humps. What can cause this?


It could be several different things. If it does it only when applying the brakes I would say that your brakes rotors and drums need to be turned on a brake lathe. Other things to check are the tires either being out of balance or damaged. You may have a bent or damaged wheel. Check your front CV joints and axles. Check front wheel bearings. Check for slack in your pitman and idler arms. Check the ujoints and carrier bearing on your rear driveline.

I need to replace the right front wheel bearing on a 96 saturn sc1 any advice


The easiest way is to buy the knuckle and front hub together. It is more expensive but unless you have access to a press to press the knuckle from the hub and then press a new bearing in it will be impossible to replace.

Also like any wheel bearing job, change in pairs not just one. So change both front wheels because if one is going then the other is not far behind.

Good luck!

I need to change right front wheel bearing on 96 honda accord


It's not a easy job you will need a press to take the old one out and replace the new one, my advice to you is take the steering knockle out and have your local shop press the bearing out for you and put the new one in. This way you just have to bolt everything back up and your good to go.
