Wheel Hub/Bearing Replacement
OK, this is for you high mileage guys especially
Anyone replace their wheel hubs and at what mileage?
I am at 263k KM (165k miles) with possibly original hubs. Not sure on the history of my 2004
They do not seem to have any noticeable problems upon inspection and the truck seems to drive great. I have done a full brake service on all 4 brakes but sometimes it feels like i am stepping on the gas more than i need to.
I am still getting only about 10 mpg City after doing almost everything else for tuneups including running acetone and Lucas fuel treatment in the gas.
Do you think the hubs could be the cause even though they don't really show any symptoms of failure?
I can spin the hub by hand with the wheel off relatively easy with only minor effort (as it rotates the drive shaft and final drives at the same time) Maybe I need to remove the hub for best inspection?
