Got a problem need help....

i noticed that on my 99 f250 4x4 the pass side front axle has play in it alot more than the driver side. i jacked the front end up and the tires dont have any play in them ..so is there a another bearing beside the hub bearing? when u spin the tire while it jacked up the axle spins ( the hubs are unlocked) u can stick the a broom in there and stop it while the tire is spinning..

Yes, on the inside of your hub you have two bearings. One is your wheel bearing (carries weight of vehicle etc....) and one is the axle bearing, it keeps the front cv axle centered in the hub. If the axle bearing goes out you will get excessive play up and down on the cv axle.


Actually a pretty easy fix. usually less than 220 bucks for a NON ABS front end, or 120 bucks a hub for a 4 wheel ABS hub.


Ask me how I know. LoL

Yes, its a one piece hub. Two bearings in it. Just go to any auto parts store or website and look for a hub

Nope, pull your locker out, take off your caliper and bracket. and 4 nuts on the inside of your steering knuckle. you will see it, you will need a short socket and a short extention, and you may have to turn the front CV axle a bit to snake it in there.

Any issues, call me
