first off, if this is in the wrong sub forum, im sorry, i didn't know what to classify a rear hub as, either suspension or drivetrain or brakes.
I noticed the right rear hub on my T-Bird was loose, worn enough that the top of the tire would move in and about 3/4" of an inch. Fine, need a new rear hub bearing before it blows out and does even more damage.
I pulled off knuckle, pressed out old bearing (what a pain! but it finally came out), pressed new bearing in (after heating up knuckle with torch), pressed old hub in and it still wobbles!?!? crap! whats wrong?
played with the hub and saw there was a gap between the back/inner/closest to differential side of the bearing. I seats tight to outer bearing, but doesn't touch inner part of bearing, Pulled hub to find this:
started looking and asking, is that supposed to be a step down or tapered?
found a online photo to compare it to: no step...
Do i need a new hub?
