Wheel Hub Bearings
OK, so here'* the problem I've been having. I wanted to get my 2000 SLE Bonnie aligned (ront and rear), and a few other problems were found. 1 is tie rods. I figured these were bad, and I have changed other tie rods on other vehicles. Is there anything special about mine, or are they bascially the same as any other vehicle?
Also, I was told that my wheel hub bearings were bad (fronts). I hear a tremendous amount of road noise (especially on freeway), and both my ABS and traction control have not been working for a while. How hard is it to replace the bearings yourself? Are any special tools needed? I am pretty good with cars, so as long as no special tools or skills are required I would like to try it on my own. Has anyone here done this before?
Also, with the bearings, they were replaced approx. 2 years ago. Is it odd that they are bad again after such a short time? The warranty was only for 1 year, so I can't use that. It just seems like they should last a little bit longer than that. The place I took it to is reputable, so I don't think they're trying to scam me. I just want to see if you guys feel the same about my problem.
Thanks for the help.
