So i noticed that my driver front tire leans a few degrees in on the top. had me kind of worried. I jacked it up and diagnosed it with my wheel bearing being shot, there wasn't even a dust cap on it. What kind of risk is it to drive on it? as soon as i figured out i parked it, but would it be ok to drive a little if i absolutely need too?
so i picked up the inner and outer bearings, seal, and dust cap. cool stuff too, i love bearings and stuff with such precise tolerences. but im going to tackle it first thing in the morning so i can go out and do my christmas shopping haha.
Anyone have any tips? ive had it explained to me and it seems like a just start taking things apart and its pretty self explanatory. make sure to get it nice and clean (told to use a coffee can full of gas). pack the bearings up nice and well and put them in. tighten the nut until it seems right (not too loose, but not excessive friction) . All of this sound right? I can document it too if anyone is interested in pictures.
need to do ball joints soon too
