    Found out why my rear tire wobbled(pics)



    Somehow my bearing just got torn apart and the rubber seals, balls, and center ring was all gone that's what's left in my rear bearing carrier

    $2.99 a pair at my lhs,for nice sealed bearings.Triple check your bearing drive shaft's.If their bent they take out a bearing in no time.

    alright thanks, I just checked it's not bent unless it's slightly bent to the point where it's not visible to the eye, but alright I'll just get some new bearings when I go pick up my hinge pin set that's the only thing w/ the rear end, now I'll work on the front steering problem and I'll be good to go, it's pretty frustrating after getting new stuff then other stuff break haha but I know when I get it running solid again it'll pretty much stay like that and be worth the time and money

    yea true I don't want to wait for that in the mail I'd rather buy the parts my truck needs to run at my lhs so it could be running fine the same day I figure what the problem is and for other stuff I don't mind waiting for it online

    Which is exactly why you stock up on the bearings and other parts you know you will need. FWIW, these "econo" bearings sell for $2.75 each if one was silly enough to buy them singly. Although probably not quite worth that, the quality crushes any 2-for-$3 LHS bearings I have found.

    My trans/driveshaft output bearing was reduced to less than that before I caught it. In one battery pack I went to fine to wobbly to gone. In truth, it was obviously not fine for sometime. When I serviced/replaced all the parts I found my trans is now so much smoother and more free to spin. Guess I need to watch those more closely. I replace wheel bearings frequently as I run the car 2/4200 packs at least 3 days a week. Track is an old ballfield so it's often very dusty.

    You might want to try balancing your wheels as well. It makes a truck much nicer to drive. Look it up on YouTube. I use poster hanging putty.

    All you have to do is use your front axle and spin it on there.

    yea true, but I'd think that would be a little more complicated considering I'd rather have the inner part of the rim facing me in the open w/out the chassis, etc. in the way, it's a good idea and I may be wrong it could be just as easy so I'll check it out
