Ate a Bearing.

Yup, Buuuurp.
After work today, I was on my way home from Buffalo Wild Wings when i heard a thunk and some squeaking. Put the truck up in the air and pulled of my wheel and the bearing was roasted, good thing i caught it before it wrecked a tire.
Anyways, putting the hub back on, i wondered if i should do the other side also? they were both done at the same time last year. (yes, last year)
What do you guys think? or should i just take the hub off and grease it up again (grease is cheap)

Well, does it feel sloppy or is it tight still?

X2 If it feels ok then buy another and just hang on to it, if it feels like it has been playing in the sandbox then swap it now...

i would fix both, you're in there right? kinda along the lines of doing balljoints when you're replacing the CVs.

It had some play, but it wasn't anything i would consider bad yet. It might be a bit loose.
I'll take the other wheel off today and see how the bearing itself moves. i just didn't have time yesterday, but i wondered whether or not i should bother.

I had to do that once to a Bronco at a buddies house. (Pedro, Pay attention yours will probably be like this eventually) The seals went to hell on the inside rear wheels. so his rear end diff fluid was like water, and i didn't have my little race puller tool. So i ended up using a Slide hammer and beat it out like a 13 year old going thru puberty.

Its a good place to watch any kind of sports game. The have Projectors and TVs everywhere, Some places even do Local Beer on tap. I had some Founders "The Dirty Bastard" with my wings. (MI guys will know Founders), Thursday is usually like 80cent wing day, any number of boneless wings for 80cents a piece.

I can usually eat just as much as Jared (he's about 280 and as tall as me) but yesterday i wasn't feeling it. but i always say light on the BBQ sauce, i want to taste some wings.
I'm lactose intolerant, so neither. I had Potato wedges instead.

They also have the trivia games that you can play while you are eating. They are pretty fun.

You lose +5 hipster points.
it doesn't matter what the wings cost. its worth it. I saw yesterday they had some kind of special going on about trying like 5 different beers for like $5.55. Its only like 8oz of beer, but 8oz of Bells Brewey's Oberon (14%ABV) is enough for me.

You know how they have all those commercials about people needed excuses? we'll sign you up on that one.
We'll cover for you, you should see an identical truck parked in the street by yours later, don't ask questions, just give the guy sitting in the drivers seat a fist bump and a head bob, he'll understand
