That doesnt sound too good

Hello all

Has anyone ever heard a car with a stuffed rear wheel bearing? well, I had one pack it in over the last couple of days, at first i thought it was a stuffed trailing arm bush but then it got worse and worse, and would only make noise when off throttle and not turning right (left rear wheel)

I then thought it may have been the diff, i mean, my car vibrates its nut off and I can see the wheel moving oddly when looking at it (my mate did a slow driveby) but rang my old man who says its definately the bearing. Rang Ford for a quote......$270 plus parts. Get Bent, is what I said. Ultra Tune said $160 odd...much better. they wanna drive it themselves to confirm though

Just found out work is giving me a grand cash bonus, so that'll get the bearings done, finally my radius rod bushes done, slotted discs/new pads/overhauled calipers, new front tyres and some fat sway bars...and with any change i may have, some splits for inside.

But the big news is I'll be getting a loan shortly, paying off the car, getting some paintwork issues sorted out......and looking into manual conversion/auto rebuild, some snappy diff gears and maybe a DEV (insert number here) head and cam. The goal is to run a 14 second quarter NA in full Fairmont trim, keeping the thing absolutely stock on the outside and stock looking under the bonnet (except for the Pacemakers and tickford snorkel of course). Then later on, I'll look into the mags, tickford bodykit thing.....or just blow it. Or leave it and buy something with a V8 (XC Hardtop mmm)

Take it easy peoples

Re: That doesnt sound too good

The wheel bearings in my xr6 went.. There was no vibrations.. just a whining noise as you de-celerated off throttle.. No vibration, just a whining noise. The slower you got, the worse the whining, then it stopped at abou 10km/hr
