Hub Bearing Assembly

Do you have to replace both left and right or can you just do one side. I understand if one is bad the other could be on its way but the whole money thing is coming into play.

just replace the bad one.....since they are sealed cartridges...the lifespan isnt predictable so there is no point in replacing a good one. Ive seen them go 25k and fail...and ive seen them go 250k and still be good....

No the best thing isn't both at once. Only replace the one that needs it. Why replace something that isn't a problem. If you were talking the balljoints on one side yeah I would do both but not the hub bearings. You should on the other hand keep an eye on the one that isn't replaced.

Once you notice the bearing have gone is it ok to drive it until the parts come in or should I make her sit?

After seing mine once I got it off, I would suggest leting it sait as much as possible. The popping you are hearing is the bearings shearing and hanging up, filling your hub and every other void with ground metal.

The grinding has stopped its the only reason I can tell it is bad it my wheel has about 1/4 inch play in it when I lift it. Is the fact that its not grinding good or bad?

Ever see a truck loose a whole wheel on the freeway? Not very safe idea to keep driving it.
