Axle Bearing....How hard?
Ok so some of you know i do not have the ranger anymore, but i drive a mustang. Well, it aquired this weird sound the other night sounded like metal clicking or tapping but it was coming from the rear end....i was a bit worried but i didnt do much about it because it went away that same day. Well, now the car has a hideous vibration that will not go away. My thoughts are that it is a bad axle bearing. I wanna do the job myself. Im curious first off if it is a hard job and second is there any sure fire way to make sure it is the bearing before i tear into this job? I have gone through the list of possible other things it could be, suspension, driveshaft, u-joints, tranny mounts, tires out of balance, etc... None of them are the issue. Also how difficult of a job is it? Im pretty good with tools and im fairly confident i can do the job. I have a haynes manual (which is more of a guide than an actual how to) and that should help me atleast get the right tools before i start.
Please any help would be awesome, its my DD and i cant stand feeling like im driving on those safety grooves on the side of a highway constantly! I have and will post new pics if you all wish, i know you guys love stangs!
