    Chebby 1500HD Wheel Bearing Time

    Ugh
    Started feeling a little slight bumpy rumble in the front about a month ago.
    Thought it was the frozen highway as it came and went.
    Then was thinking it needed tires rotated.
    Then googled YouTube and saw everyone changing LF wheel bearings, which is where mine felt the vibes.
    Sure enough, jacked it up this morning and wheel is rocking.
    Hub but appears to be 35mm.
    Naturally the size I don't have.
    Called my neighbor. He just called back with he has something.
    All bolts surprisingly have come loose thanks to Kroil.

    Will update results. My local parts guy opens at 9. Hopefully has the assembly in stock.

    The brake shield looks bad. Is that from road salt?

    Yep. It's shot but still intact. Local parts guy said he would have to order shield so the old one went back on. He had the bearing assembly in stock thankfully.
    All bolts came out ok.
    Beat on bearing assembly a little, then wound up using two small chisels to work it out.
    Never seized everything and bolted it back up.
    Torqued hub nut back to 156 lbs and that was a wrap.
    See how long these Chinese set ups last I guess. Pretty much all they sell now.
    Pretty easy job. Be nice to have a lift instead of working in the driveway.

    Years ago I had to do the ones on my wife's S10 Blazer. Local auto parts store has loaner tool program. I had the wife hold the brakes on to loosen and tighten the axle nut. I should have done both sides, 6 months later I had to do the other side.

    My thoughts exactly.
    I figured I would just do them both.
    So I ordered another one from Amazon. Same price as the local auto parts shop. This one is a Timken, Made in USA.
    So I guess we will have a USA vs China showdown in the front wheel bearing endurance marathon.

    Timkin will win the race, no doubt in my mind.
    Been using Timkin exclusively on all my repairs for over 45 years, never had to go back and replace them.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.

    I put in a Chinese local part store brand bearing with a 1 year warranty. 13 months later I put in a Timken. Never again. Always Timken.
