Anyone have a bearing come apart
I posted this in another part of the forum but didn't get a response. On my way home the other day I noticed my brake on the driver side was hot. I let it cool and when I got home and backed the trailer in it changed a lot and the front end got real tight. By the time I got it to the front of my shop the wheel locked up. When I pulled the tire and brake/mounting bracket the hub,rotor and front half of the bearing fell out. That left the back half and stub shaft intact.
Never seen that before, no warning until the brake got hot. Then some vibes on the trip home.
The truck was involved in a t bone collision where that wheel took enough impact to break the upper ball joint. But the ins company refused to replace the bearing. When they replaced the ball joints they said they had to put an offset one in to get it aligned. I am guessing the bearing was messed up too causing the alignment troubles.
Now that it is back together I think it is out of alignment because it pulls a touch to the right and handles odd. I replaced the bearing, bracket, rotor, pads and driveshaft seal.
Any of this sound odd?
