wheel bearing

  1. Howling sound

    4.6L Tech
    I have a howling sound from 30mph through 35mph and again around 60mph. My first thought was to replace the wheel bearings in the front so I went and bought two Timken wheel bearing and hub assembly's. I put them on while I was putting my SR Performance lowering springs on. After I finished...
  2. Wheel squeaks when turning

    V6 Tech
    I've got a 2001 Mustang and the right front wheel squeaks whenever I turn it left or right. Power steering fluid is full. Not sure what the problem could be, but it doesn't sound good at all.
  3. Wheel Bearing Replacement... Fair Quote?

    4.6L Tech
    I had my Cobra inspected today just as a "getting somewhat close to rainy season" thing. Turns out I need my front right wheel bearing replaced. They quoted me $125 for the "Front Hub Assembly" and then $100 for labor after tax it comes out to a little over $230. I feel like this is steep for...
  4. Spindle lock nut and dust cap

    V6 Tech
    I want to replace the wheel bearings but I cannot find the spindle lock nut at the local auto part stores. Both Advanced and Autozone don't seem to have it. Any ideas where else to look for it other than the dealership ? Those who have replaced the bearings, I am wondering where you guys got...

  6. Wheel bearing or brakes making noise in 2003 Mustang GT?

    4.6L Tech
    Squeaky chirping that chirps once per revolution of the wheel while driving, noise goes away somewhat while braking and goes away totally when turning the car right. Turning left or going straight it chirps ? I checked the front wheels while jacked up for slop by pushing/pulling at top and botom...
  7. mustang wheel bearings vs. axle bearings

    4.6L Tech
    This is going to seem like a really stupid question. My girl hit a curb in my stang and i have a bent axle. Im changing it out this weekend. The axle comes with axle bearings and seals, that i can do. However the wheel bearings are what trips me up. So i have an axle and a hub bolted to the...
  8. 1968 Mustang-How do you replace rear wheel bearing

    Classic Tech
    I have a 68 and my driver's side rear wheel bearing has gone bad. I have a few questions about replacing it. Can they be replaced with ordinary tools? I do know that I may need an axle slide hammer. Do you need to go into the pumpkin to remove anything to get the axle out? Do you need a...
  9. Bad News from the Mechanic :(

    2.3L Tech
    Hey everybody, So as the thread title suggests, I got some really horrible news that has just put a major set-back in my project... I took my 1990 n/a 2.3L coupe down to the local Canadian tire to get the front end aligned in hopes that it would help the fact that when I turn my steering wheel...
