Were the brgs burnt or did they just fall apart? If they were burnt, they were too tight and if they fell apart, probably too loose or just bad brgs. Could have been from lack of grease. Not much to go on for answers.

I just had my first experiance of a failed bearing that was replaced in April along with the axle...i feel for you as its not a cheap fix especially if you need a new spindle(axle).

Have been talking to the dealers warranty rep. tomorrow again. He is trying to help. Seams there has been an excessive amount of axle failures the mfg know it and are washing their hands of it. blaming owner maintenance
