Gotta question reguarding my front rotors or my front hubs. When I am driving straight I am noticing some squeeking in my brakes and thats comming from the rear. But when I turn my tires left or right I am noticing loud squeeling from the front. So im sure that the front brakes are needing some love too. My question basically is about the front hub. Since the wheel bearings for the front end are built into the hub that sits on the Spindle and the rotor attaches to it as well, could the front hubs be worn out since im running 37's? Is that a common thing? Or are they pretty durable and its probally new rotors and pads up front... only reason why im wondering if it is the bearings in the hubs is because they dont really squeel unless im turnin my wheels... any help would be awesome! Thanks

Just jack up your truck and try to rock your wheel (back and forth) if any play your bearings are bad. :teeth:

NEVER buy bearings from the dealer. Look under bearings in the yellow pages or just type "bearings covina, ca" into Google. When I do I get a number of bearing places in your area.

Take your old bearings into the parts house. They can look up replacement bearings by the number on the old bearing. Do yourself a favor when buying bearings though. Buy Timken bearings or other American made bearings. Stay away from Chinese bearings. Remember, ALWAYS replace bearings and the race together.

You can't have the old races pressed out and new races pressed in?
