I guess I barely made it home safe after work last night with my backhoe trailer. I was hearing a screeching and deep resonating on the way home after work. Cut loose the trailer today and jacked the front right off the ground. The whole hub has about 1/4 wobble in each direction. Piece of crap timken has only about 30,000 miles. Stockers went 275,000. Can only find a National locally. We will give it a try.
That could explain why my hubs wouldn’t lock in auto while trying to climb a steep road at the jobsite.

New bearing I installed ended not being a National, but a Moog. The 30,000 mile Timken it replaced looked like a glitter-bomb went off.

Is my math correct ?

Hand calc
I traveled 430.5 miles and I put back in 23.752 gallons from last fillup and trip reset to 0.

I am getting 18.125 rounding up. Mpg. If so that’s really good. My trip meter on the truck says 17.1.

Been driving at an avg of 75 mph to and from my house and work. 121 miles each way. Light hills. For a few weeks now.

I like the description of the Timken bearing. That really sucks though - that is not many miles on it before it "blew up" . The Ex I just sold made 133,000 without a failure on front hubs. Mine is at 109,000 without an issue - but now that I have said something it will kick me in the backside :)

You are a math scholar - your numbers are correct. Trip meter is kinda like dash gauges for temps/oil pressure................IMHO :)

Wish I got that kind of mpg - mind ya my lead toe on the skinny pedal probably doesn't help :)

Usually I get 12. That’s why this is so alarming lol. The trip to Massachusetts is decently flat and I think the steady highway is contributing. For having a grinding pinion bearing is say it’s real good.

I was making my lunch a bit ago, and the wooden spoon I was using was making a cracking noise. Curious, and wanting to find the crack, I would flex it back and forth in my hands hands, trying to see if I could locate the noise, thus finding the issue. It took about 30-40 seconds of twisting and flexing, but I figured it out - it was the joints in my hands that were cracking.

Yes folks, this is what life in your 40's is like...

I've got a Timken on the driver's side front (somewhere in the 150k mile range) and a Moog on the passenger side front (probably more like 100k miles). I assume we are talking about the 4x4 unit bearings. If not, disregard.

Yup.....and I heard the driver side sqreech today, I think. Once I cut the backhoe trailer loose, I will check it out. I have only had bad experiences with any aftermarket replacement part on my Ford trucks.

To be clear, the mileage numbers I listed are what's on the current bearings, not when they were replaced. Neither of the OEMs made it past 150k.
