To start, my ABS light came on a short while back. Scanned the truck and it was the left front ABS sensor. Truck has 142,xxx miles on it, so I figured I would kill two birds with one stone. I found a sweet deal on two new hubs and sensors and replaced both sides last night. Went down the road and came back. The light went away and everything seemed to be OK. Got a shower and left the house to go out(this is going to be hard to explain so bear with me on the description.) Before replacing the hubs, and not long after buying the truck in February I started to feel a bump in the floor board on the drivers side. Figured it was just the sway bar bushings, but I haven't gotten around to changing them. The bump wasn't horibble, but it was noticeable. Well on the way to go out last night the bump became some sort of an animal and was very noticeable. Still seems to be on the drivers side. Its kinda faint driving in straight line, but going through curves It was ridiculous. Didn't matter which way the curve was(left or right) it was horrible.
Now when I replaced the hubs the spline shafts had play in them...not a tremendous amount but just movement. I figured that was normal.
Is this where I was wrong and need to replace joints and seal there?
Please do feel free to post any knowledge or experience here. I hate to go and ruin new parts I just put on.
If you need anything cleared up, let me know and I will elaborate more!
Thanks to all
