But that would have stressed the bearing and suspension on one side primarily. You're saying both rear bearings are loose.

lol... No, I never noticed any vibrations coming from my rear.

Both sides are hashed. But the passenger'* side is the worst.

Earlier today I took it around town, and almost every corner I took, one of the back rotors would tilt enough to rub up against a brake pad and make a pretty nasty moaning noise (new pads = closer to rotor). I have 4 new hubs sitting in the garage now, so I've got a busy weekend ahead.
