PostSubject: Front wheel bearings   Front wheel bearings EmptySun Oct 26, 2008 6:33 pm

I had my Rhino at LEX motor sports to have the front diff seal replaced and they said it needed the wheel brearing replaced also. The wheels have a little play in them but now one does not seam to roll as smooth. What I mean is when I have the front jacked up the driver side does not roll real smooth.You can hear like a clicking sound when you roll it. Could that be the wheelbearing or a cv going out, or someting in the front diff going out.? The passinger side rolles smooth but has more play than the driver side.
This is what I get for buying a used one. Where is a good place to take it to replace the front wheelbearings. I am in Richmond KY, I will not be taking it back to Lex motor sports. I was told it would be 1 hour labor to replace the front diff seal and 2 weeks later when the right part come it I was charged for 3 hpurs labor. I was told the guy that priced it to me was fired. I was not happy but what could I do I was not the onlyone having that problem.

Thanks Tim

i can change the wheel bearing in a hour easy. hardest part for me is getting the ball joints out of the a-arms.

was the seal leaking??? i guess it was the seal at the driveshaft ?

you can get wheel bearings from moose utility for under 30 bucks.
and bad bearing will make the wheel harder to roll.

this is where i order them from 20bucks.
and i pop the seals off the bearing because they do not come with much grease. but they do have just as much grease as factory bearings
