any tips on install on frt. wheel bearings?
I'm gonna change them out and wondered if anyone has done this and have any tips on it. I figure its probably straight forward but then a little insight wouldn't hurt. Thanks guys!

hey @rudyjoe so were you noticing some play in the front wheel or just well age and miles do it before there is an issue?

well @rudyjoe how did the install go? am thinking may be time to do it on mine as when am coasting i can hear a definite noise that does not sound consistent, comes and goes. or is this a thing better left to the big boys that have done it before?

i had a noise coming from the wheel while coasting under 10 mph. turns out the front wheel spacers were rubbing the rubber seals. i pulled the wheel and put some white grease on
