Wheel bearing on truck

Question

Freckles

I have a 2001 F250 Super Duty. It now has 50,000 miles on it. I know that is low for the year but I don't drive it all the time because the cost of Diesel fuel. Any way when I had 42,000 miles on it the right rear wheel bearing went out at a cost of $285.00 to fix , Now at 50,000 miles it is going out again. doe's anyone out there know what could causing this? I have had other trucks with over 100,000 mile on and never had to replace rear wheel bearings.

Sometimes when a rear baearing goes out, it scars up the axle. If they dont put in a "repair" bearing in those cases, it can cause premature failure of the new bearing.

A repear bearing simply rides on a undamaged portion of the axle.

You don't by chance have a locker rear end do you? If you are hearing the clicking and snapping in a corner and you have a locker I'd say it's the locker making normal noises.

The F-250 SD has a full floating rear axle, they do not make a "repair bearing" for them. It is not likely that the wheel brg has failed again, if it has it was caused by something during repair, improper torque etc. these use a ratcheting type of retaining nut on the bearing and require a special socket to adjust torque and preload. If you hear it around corners and it is a locking rear end, this is not normal, the clutch pack in the diff is bad, when its right there should be no chatter, binding or noise. I would return to where the bearing was replaced and have them ride with you and get diagnosis of the concern. I've seen a few of these bearings go and eat the spindle on the axle housing, that housing costs alot of money (>$2000) so don't wait on it. Have it checked out and once you know what the problem is you can determine your options.

Sounds like it is in the diff to me also. Bearings will usually make a howling noise and will usually get louder or quieter depending on which way you turn (say you start to hear it around 40 mph, if you turn slightly to the left and it gets louder its the right side bearing). I would bet that the noise went away after the first bearing was replaced because of the new fluid that was added. Just a theory!

I pulled the right rear axle out last night and bearings fell out. So I either have something wrong or the mechanic screwed up installing the last one. I borrowed the tool to remove the racheting nut that holds the bearing on , but when I try to turn the nut, the tool just slip out of the notchs. I guess I will try again tonight. I just ran out of time last night.

the clicking noise in the back end of mine was the emergency brake - I just had them remove it as I never use it.

That is really unusual, was this truck ever involved in an accident that you are aware of? If not, I wonder how this could have happened, high speed off roading, frequent major air, do you just have regular seat belts or a 5 point harness? Just kidding, I'm happy you were able to find a good used rearend and the price sure sounds right.

Yes, it was a roll-over. I bought it from a salvage and repairable lot two years ago.

      A series of events celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment will take place throughout Minnesota in 2018. The first of these events will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at Silverwood Regional Park, 2500 County Road E, St. Anthony.  Adults and kids who attend the Parks and Trails Legacy Celebration at Silverwood Regional Park can try kick-sledding, ice fishing, a snowmobile simulator and other indoor and outdoor activities. Visitors can also hike among art sculptures throughout the park. Between activities, there will be s’mores and other light refreshments around a crackling bonfire. “The passage of the Legacy Amendment was a game-changer for organizations working to support Minnesota’s outstanding system of parks and trails,” said Erika Rivers, director of the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “At this event, and the statewide events to follow, we will not only highlight what has been accomplished over the past decade with Legacy funding but, perhaps even more important, we will gather input from people throughout the state—adults and kids alike—to help shape priorities moving forward.” Staff from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the Metropolitan Council and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission will be on hand throughout the afternoon to lead activities and gather ideas. Metro Transit is providing free rides to the event. Get a downloadable bus pass at www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac/2018-regional-events. Future Parks and Trails Legacy Celebration events will take place: Friday, April 27, 4-7 p.m., at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph. Saturday, May 5, 1-4 p.m. at the Red Baron Arena in Marshall. Friday, May 11, 4-7 p.m., at Hyland-Bush-Anderson Lakes Park in Bloomington. Saturday, May 19, 1-4 p.m. at 125 LIVE in Rochester. Saturday, June 2, 1-4 p.m. at Itasca State Park in Park Rapids. Saturday, June 16, 1-4 p.m. at Prairie Wetland Environmental Learning Center in Fergus Falls. Wednesday, June 27, 1-4 p.m. at Essentia Health Duluth Heritage Sports Center in Duluth. For more information, visit www.legacy.leg.mn/ptlac.

      Which river is good for char?

      Here's a little back ground. The Dakota originally called the lake Mde Maka Ska (modern spelling Bde Maka Ska, pronunciation: Be-DAY Mah-KAH-Ska)[5] meaning White Earth Lake,[6] or White Bank Lake,[7] a name that probably was given by the Ioway who inhabited the area until the 16th century. Another Dakota name for the lake may have been Mde Med'oza, which was the name initially adopted by settlers, either as Lake Medoza or in translation as Loon Lake.[8] The Dakota also described it as Heyate Mde, meaning "Lake Set Back (from the River)".[9] The United States Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun, sent the Army to survey the area that would surround Fort Snelling in 1817. Calhoun had also authorized the construction of Fort Snelling, one of the earliest Euro-American settlements in the state. The surveyors renamed the water body "Lake Calhoun" in his honor. The Fort Snelling Military Reservation survey map created by Lt. James L. Thompson in 1839 clearly shows the lake as bearing the name "Calhoun".[10] Minneapolis skyline reflected in the lake in 2010 Calhoun's legacy as a pro-slavery politician has led critics to question whether he is the best person to be honored. In 2011 the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board visited the issue. Their legal counsel concluded that the board could not legally change the name, as state law gives that power to the Commissioner of Natural Resources, and then only in the first 40 years after the name was designated. Following the Charleston church shooting in June 2015, a fresh drive to change the name started via an online petition. The Park Board indicated it would look into whether they could change the lake's name through state action,[11][12] and in fall 2015 added the Dakota name to signage below the official name.[1] On March 22, 2016, an advisory group decided via majority vote to urge the Minnesota Park and Recreation Board to restore the lake's former name.[13] In 2017, the Minneapolis Park Board voted unanimously to change the lake's name back to that of Bde Maka Ska[14] and the Hennepin County commissioners approved it more narrowly.[15] The change needs final approval at state and federal level in order to go into effect.[16] There was also a proposal to rename the lake for Senator Paul Wellstone, who is buried in nearby Lakewood Cemetery.[17]

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today announced the State of Minnesota has approved changing the name of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis to Bde Maka Ska. The DNR’s decision follows a Hennepin County Board resolution requesting the change.  “The DNR respects the role of elected county boards in determining name changes for geographic features,” DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr said.  “In this instance, I am confident the Hennepin County Board carefully considered community values and citizen perspectives in determining that this was the right action to take. DNR’s role is to ensure the county followed the proper process.” The DNR’s decision means the lake name change will become official in Minnesota when the DNR’s approval is officially recorded by Hennepin County and published in the State Register. Hennepin County commissioners voted to seek the name change Nov. 28. The DNR will submit the Hennepin County resolution, along with the state approval, to the U.S. Board of Geographic Names, which will approve or deny the name change for federal use. The DNR is the state agency that approves or denies name changes for geographic features, after Minnesota counties consider name change resolutions, gather public input and vote on proposed changes. In considering county requests to name a geographic feature or change a feature’s name, the DNR’s role is to consider 1) whether the county followed a proper public process prior to taking its action, and 2) whether the county-approved name complies with naming conventions. For example, names must avoid confusion with similarly named features, and names may not commemorate a living person. A copy of the DNR’s order for this name change and details on how Minnesota geographic features are named are available on the naming geographic features webpage.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.
