Just a curious "on looker" here.....
You guys are talking about the front hubs in rear wheel
drive trucks right??? Not 4wd.
Not sure about this statement--
"there's no chance that the wheel will just pop off"
I've never seen any bearing assembly that couldn't
fail catastrophically if it's given enough time.
In other words I think the wheel could fall all the way
off eventually but it would be making a lot of vibration
and noise first.
Also- Pierre, about how many miles/kilometers did
you have when yours went out?
Inquiring minds want to know!!
