Think I need a new hub assembly, but am confused
I noticed my truck starting to make a pulsating rough sound that sped up while driving, then suddenly it felt like my drivers side front wheel had a mind of its own and started pulling in various directions. When I got home, it was smoking, and the locking hub was blazing hot.
I believe I need a new hub assembly, but my truck is an early 99. I've read multiple sometimes conflicting things about buying a late 99 and up assembly and rotor, but then it might not work with the caliper, etc. They are brand new calipers and I would hate to replace the, again.
My truck runs 37" tires and I may go to 44", it's basically my tree pulling/off roading/load carrying toy, but I want it to be as reliable as possible.
So what should I do? Who makes the best parts? Can I replace just bearings? I see assemblies on eBay 2 for 149, just says "for year 1999". Can I go late model? I just need to be told where to go and what to get and I'll trust you all.
Thank you guys once again! I'm only on here once in a while when I need help, but you all never fail to come through, I'm thankful for communities like this, they save a lot of people a lot of money and create great friendships!
