What is a wheel hub and how does it work?
Attached to each wheel on your vehicle is a wheel hub, fitted with a set of ball bearings to allow the wheel to spin freely. The wheel hub is the component that connects the wheels to the rest of the suspension. The outer surface of the wheel hub is fitted with studs or “lugs” to which the wheels are attached.
What are the signs that a wheel hub needs to be replaced?
Wheel bearings often make a telltale sound when they are going bad. You might notice a “growling” noise coming from one corner of your vehicle while driving, typically changin pitch with the speed of travel. The growling noise usually gets louder on turns when your vehicle leans toward the wheel with the bad bearing. For instance, if you have a bad right front wheel bearing, turning left will cause the vehicle to shift its weight to the right, toward the bad bearing. That is when it may be most noticeable. Severely worn or damaged wheel bearings can make a grinding noise and can be dangerous.
