1/99 F250SD destroys hub assemblies
Hi, I got my truck back in April and one week later the passenger side front hub assembly welded tight! So, I replaced it. Then, back in September, the driver side hub assembly disintegrated. I replaced it. Now, just four months later, it's making a horrible grinding noise and vibrating just as it did before it went out last time. AutoZone is shipping me a new one. Any ideas as to why its killing the hubs? My tires are not overly huge, the rims are 16x13 according to the tire stores caliper and the tires are 305/70/16's. they are not putting too much strain on the hubs being wide are they? Any ideas?
