      So my friend called me today and said i need a new spindle. He said the wheel bearing destroyed the old spindle..he said the new bearing goes in and out without a press..



      New spindle shipped overnight is costing me 160$.

      Means my car should be good for sowo but also means i'll be broke.

      How in the world does a wheel bearing destroy the spindle? That kind of doesn't make sense….its not like you can stretch the inside of a steel upright with the bearing….or can you?

      There is a 75mm and an 82mm bearing available... wrong bearing maybe?

      No my friend said the bearing was so bad that it actually stretched the spindle out so to say. Now the new bearing wont fit in.

      Nick tell me about it. Its never ending. I guess driving 3.5 hrs to penn state wasn't the best thing for my wheel bearing. Its been bad since my car was done. So I've been driving on it for a good month.

      I really don't understand it all but the person working on my car is my buddy..he knows his **** and he wouldn't screw me over.



      Now after an alignment, brake lines, and my snub mount my car should be good reliability wise.

      Thanks newhaus.


      I hate these little problems but i'd still rather deal with them rather than having a car payment every month. Plus i like my car being mine..i wanna be able to put an exhaust on or lower it and not worry about warranties or anything like that. Plus im broke as sh*t lol...car payment would be death for me.

      So i got my car back today. Everything seems to be fixed. My friend didn't need to use my new bearing or the hub because the new spindle had everything. The new spindle also came with a new brake wear sensor so now my light on my dash went away.

      I'll prob keep the bearing because god knows how soon until this one goes bad. The hub i'll prob send back.

      The toe ring on my axle was stopping it from going into the spindle all the way..it doesn't make sense but i really don't even care. My ABS module has been shot since i bought my car, the PO pulled the lights on the dash so its not a big deal to me.

      While driving home i heard a weird noise over bumps. When i got home i put it on stands to lower it again and check out the noise and i noticed my strut bushing is shot.


      The metal in the center actually came out. Lately i did notice the metal was bent but didn't think anything of it. Im prob going to buy some upgraded mounts and i might cut my stock bump stops and put a small piece of them in for extra protection...don't want to blow my struts out.

      Other than that, feels good to have my car back, especially with the annoying bearing noise gone.

      Thanks Geoff. Im hoping to get them mounted by next week. 2 wheels are done they just need to be fully torqued and sealed. I'm stripping the sealant off the other two right now.
