Time for a brake job on my '09 Silverado, approx 73K miles. [Factory disc brakes in front and drums in rear.] Dealer is proposing new wheel hub assemblies on both front sides at the same time as replacing the front pads and possibly rotors, saying it's easier to do this way, and these wheel hub assemblies don't last much longer anyway.
This is new to me--on my previous vehicles, you just repacked the front wheel bearings when you did a front brake job. Now you have to replace a whole assembly?
Does this sound right? Or is the dealer trying to bank a little extra $ from me?
Which is better for the wheel hub assembly--AC Delco, Timken, or Moog?
Likewise, preference for brake pads/rotors/shoes? AC Delco, EBC, Hawk, other? Looking for smooth quiet performance, maybe a little better than stock; not a racer.
All, I have a growling noise that only shows up when I turn hard left and backup in my 2000 Chevy 2500 4x4 with the 6.0 it has 195K miles on it.
I was hearing when it did the same thing but turned to the right, but I replaced both front wheel bearing. The noise on the right side is gone after replacing the wheel bearing, but it is still there on the left side.
I Check the front differential and it has gear lube in it.
I am thinking it must be the cv axle.
Anyone have any other ideas?
I am putting new rotors, pads, rear brake shoes & springs on my 91 S15 4x4 Jimmy.
Manual says, " check wheel bearings for leaks". There are no viable leaks, no looseness, or noise from rear or front bearings.
I don't want to tear down and replace if no indication of trouble. The axle diffs have been serviced regularly, no leaks.
What else would indicate bearings need attention?
