So, I'm cruzing down the freeway tonight at about 85..... and the ABS light come on.
Which is weird... since it's never come on before, and I had not touched the brakes.
Then, about 10 miles later all hell breaks loose, and between the noise and vibration I think the right front wheel is going to leave!! I pull off, limp it home on city streets and get it into the driveway.
I jack it up, and the bearing is toast! It even started to turn blue.( old on the left, new on the right)
They are easy to change, so I swap it out in about a hour. Theres a few how to's posted on the site, in case you dont know the procedure.
The moral of the story? About 2 years ago https://dmaxstore.com/
had a good sale on Timkens, so I picked up a pair. 2 for $400, or something like that. They have been sitting on my shelf, just waiting for the day....
If you own a Duramax for ANY length of time, things will go wrong!
Plan ahead, and get your spares in place before you need them... and when the site vendors have a sale, there is no better time to do so!!
Also, if your driving (or Towing!) and the ABS light comes on, remember this thread and check your wheel bearings!
