2003 Avalanche Z71 157k miles Right rear wheel got hot enough to almost start smoking, left rear wheel too hot to touch. Could be moisture in the brake lines after having all brake lines replaced last summer but decided to replace the rear wheel bearings anyway first (how hard can it be...). Removed C clips with no problem but getting the bearings out required heating up the axle tubes a bit and beating myself half to death with the slide hammer puller but got the bearings out and new ones in with new seals easily enough after that. Problem now is when I crawled back under to insert the Differential Pinion Gear Shaft I find that somehow the Locking Differential Thrust Block has rotated 90 degrees. The holes for the shaft are no longer next to the side gears and instead are looking at me. At this point I have done just about all I can think of to rotate the thrust block, but I can't see how it rotated in the first place. It is movable but squarish. The only thing I can think of is that somehow if I back off the Latching Bracket I might be able to rotate it. Any insight?
How’s it goin fellas, Gotta 2009 Silverado 2500HD 6.0l 6L90. I have BF Goodrich All Terrain TA/KO2, the newest style with the aggressive sidewalks (the older original style looked much better). I have a terrible humming noise, 90% sure it’s coming from front end. I called my tire guy, and told him these tires are killing me with this hum. It’s at any and all speeds over 15mph. He told me check wheel hubs, which I did. I know they are known to go. Truck has 73,000mi in it. From left was replaced around 40,000. I tried every test you can put wheel bearings and hubs through. They are tight! Driving I possibly here less humming when turning left. So that would indicate left hub possibly going bad. I replace it, use skf hub assembly. Still humms, tried all different tire pressures, still humms, replaced right side hub assembly, still humms, replaced all shocks and steering stabilizer with Rancho 5000’s. Still humms, no brake dust shrouds rubbing. I’m outta ideas other than the tires again. Tires have 5,000 miles on them, and I rotate every 3,000. Any ideas? Thanks!!
I have a 2016 1500 Midnight Crew with the 8-spd. Truck has 45K Been hearing what sounds like a bad wheel bearing ( wo wo wo wo) but I replaced the left front and got brand new Durtracs in an effort to locate. Its most noticeable between 30-40 mph light throttle. Doesn't change pitch in turns though. Its defiantly from the front area of the truck. So baring a dice roll and replacing the right front, I'm looking for other ideas. At highway speeds it cancels itself out. My thought at this point is that it could be (as crazy as it sounds) an Axel bearing at the front diff? Are these even serviceable without pulling the front pumpkin. Sounds like shit at those speeds and is loud enough that comfortable radio volume cannot block it out. Of course dealer blamed everything but the root cause. Drove a 2018 Midnight and its whisper quiet. Huge disappointment. Saved a long time to afford this
