        Ha, I'm replacing wheel bearings this weekend in my car.

          Damn, didn't even notice that.

          Can't believe that car is still around! I was browsing the MotoIQ site last night and found his posts/articles. That thing basically got me interested in 240s...I originally was interested in cars as platforms for sound systems before I actually owned one. Then when I got a S14 and put some audio stuff in it, I was like "cool, this sounds good...now what?" Cue the SCC S13 articles, and here I am, 3 S14s later, on NRR, when I currently don't even own one, reading about rollcenter adjusters, DIY aero, and homebrew 2 piece brake kits.

            Sure that's not just corrosion from crap getting stuck behind the dust shield?


            So how long have you guys wheel bearings lasted? My car's at about 140,000 now and probably 10,000 track miles or so. still on the original bearings, although I think they're about done. I've noticed soem growling during really hard cornering which goes away when I tap the brakes. I'm guessing it's the play in the wheel bearing causing the rotor to rub on the caliper.

              I destroyed 1 Ichiba bearing in less than 2000 miles. I'm pretty sure my OEM bearings will last me for a while.

                I'm basically trying to rip off Coleman's s13 to best of my ability.

                  My junkyard S14 front hubs has lasted me since 2003. I repacked with Neo bearing grease like that article in 03 and still no noise to this day.

                    Pretty simple work to do, for a noob such as myself? My luck I'd get the bearing opened up, and it'll never come back together.

                      Meh...I'll just torque them down properly. My pops has a BEAST torque wrench.

                        Sure looks like a crack to me. I'm talking about the circular crack that's going around the spindle where it starts to taper out for the axle stub.

                        I did manage to have a really weird failure on some used OEM Z32 NA rear hubs. There would be no play while you rotated it around, then you could get it in a specific spot and get a good 1/2"-3/4" change in toe by rocking the wheel back and forth. Roll it some more and it'd go away. Could get the same behavior with it off the car.

                        Never really did find out what the reason was, as the shop destroyed the inner race pressing the hub out. I imagine a ball was out of place or something like that.

                          It's fairly simple, but those plastic bearing holders have sharp edges on which I cut myself.

                            So, I should have my significant other do the dangerous bit?
