Tire man told me I had inside wear on front, driver's side tire. I had been hearing some noise when making hard turns in that area.
Replaced the hub, and noise has gone away. I will say that getting snap ring back in place was short of a miracle and has me a little concerned, but it is in there.
Truck still rattles in front end when hitting potholes or driving on rough road. I replaced sway bar rods(?) or whatever they are called last year. This fixed rattling problem until now. Replaced them again, and it did not take away rattling. Serious rattling and none of this whimpy stuff. I am unable to locate anything loose under there.
U-joint and ball joints good.
After having replaced hub, truck pulls pretty good to the left now. Is this normal after replacing a hub?
Also, does anyone know of any place to find a diagram of hub and axle assembly on front, left side? I am 99% sure I correctly put it back together, but ...
My concern is in the washers. I put axle in with monster seal, then a plastic looking washer with 4 grooves on it (facing inside - about a 3 inch washer), hub, 3 washers (metal, octagon, metal), and then the rest of it.
Thank you for your help and advise
