    Rear wheel problems

    So I took a 6 month break and I get the car check everything and the rear wheels kept wobbling real bad, brand new trenchers pre mounted I'm thinking maybe the bearings? Any input is welcome

    Thanks Casey

    Yeah I'd say bearings, if they seem fine though it might be your rear carriers are flimsy and weak

    Axles would be the first thing I would check. Not hard to bend them, or bend them back...

    I had a rear wheel wobbling issue and found the stub axles to be the problem as well.
    I've since changed out just the stubs with mip and cured the problem but should ad this was after three visual inspections thinking they were fine.
    While the bend can appear insignificant looking or turning the stub axle, when the tire is mounted is becomes far more apparent.
