Hey guys,

Im wondering if I have play in all direction on the front wheel bearing, is my hub shot as well? Local shop has the bearing for $72 or the front bearing/hub assembly for $180 plus the cost of installation. I would almost do it myself but Im sick of broken bolts on this car, someone else can have fun this time around.

My question is, if the front wheel has play at both 6-12 and 3-9 oclock, is my hub shot or not or is it something the mechanic will discover when everything is appart?

If so, I'll just have it done somewhere else that accepts that I bring in my parts...


Thanks guys!!

Should just be the bearing. The only reason everyone says check bearings at 12 and 6 is so you dont get play from the tie rod as well. Tie rod and bearing could both be bad though.
