Got It Knocked Out

About an hour after I got dinner I put The Precious back together.

Took a quick test drive and the clicking was gone!

The Centric brand bearing made it a mere 43,304 miles.

However, we had an issue with the axle nuts backing off, and that might have led to some premature initial wear that caused this premature failure.

I solved the backing off issue by double nutting the axles rather than going with red Loctite.

I hate red Loctite!  There's places where it shines, but everyday automotive where something might need to be taken apart again ain't it.
