Need your help! I'm going through these things like mad.

Is there a bolt in upgrade to these cheesy bearings that keep going out on me? I mean this one only made around 23K and it's going out again..

Replaced both now, second time for the passenger side tomorrow.

are you beatin the **** out of your truck? when you install, you cant just pound em in, you have to concentrate the force onto the outer race and they have to be bottomed on the bearing bore on the knuckle. other than that, do your rims have alot of offset?

The hubs come in one piece, just bolts on.

Yes a lot of off set, plus the 33's I guess that's really the cause.
I wonder if I went down to 30's if that would help, or do I need to switch wheels? Just seems like they should take a little more.

WTF? I beat the crap out of my truck with the 35" race tires and beadlocks and have not had a single issue. I wonder if the 4cyl hubs may use different bearings or housing? Doesn't seem that that would really make sense though...

But, no fear. Timken makes an OEM replacement hub for the Frontier. They make a really nice product and it's not overly expensive at all.

I wonder if it's because I'm running the Ortega Hwy twice a day and I take those curves like a BMW. ;)

I'm going to try to reduce tire size to 265 70 16, add icon coilovers, TC UCA's, and braided brakelines. See what that does for my alignment?

WTFFFFFF. $229 for wheel bearings? I have 64,000 miles. I do not take this thing off road and alot of those miles are highway. What could cause this? Just a faulty part? Is this as easy to fix as repacking bearings on a standard 2wd drive?

As stated earlier in this thread, our front hubs are enclosed and you can not just replace the bearings like other vehicles. It is one of Nissan's awesome designs I guess. This is why it is so expensive to replace.

the tone ring is in the hub and you get a new speed sensor weather you need it or not.
