Dave, drive to StL and back with them as they are now, and quit worrying about them. If you have parts in your toolbox, great. But don't waste time on your trip fixing something that ain't broke. You'll know if your wheel bearings start to go south -- you'll be able to hear it.

It's not an o-ring on the space shuttle. It's a wheel bearing on an old, super reliable Toyota truck that was made to be abused.

You my friend are a problem solving machine today (re: cut-n-turn thread).

Three weeks off, eh? Damn, I'm jealous. Are you going to spend all 3 weeks in MO?

There is a new pizza place in Kirkwood that is excellent. They have great beer on tap, too.

My point was, I am a long way from being the sort of person who glosses over maintenance issues. I have been accused of being rather compulsive myself . So if I am saying 'you'll be fine, just fine', it means something different than say, if Rudeboy said it.

Then again, even Rudeboy hasn't spun a wheel bearing and his have 250K plus on them

Dang Wes, mine look friggin' new compared to those... Wow.

BTW, NAPA on Broadway came through. Whole set in stock, blue Koyo boxes, at least 1/2 the good price I would get from Jerry. Got them, will throw them in the truck for good mojo and be off in the morning.

It's funny the pics make it look like a knuckle bearing but that is indeed the smaller of the two wheel bearings. If was off my 64 probably an original koyo. It would have went another 100k. the race was just as bad. I was going to just repack them and run em

Uh-huh.
















You definitely got your money's worth out of those. Did it spin on the knuckle? Kind of a roller bearing/plain bearing combo??
