Wheel bearing on truck

14 posts in this topic

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.

Yes it would click, snap,and sometimes it sounded like I was fliping up a peice of metal. Also it shakes when I hit 50 MPH.

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.

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset!

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      2016 MN auction schedule if your interested in going to one.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.

      I guess if you want it bad enough, you'll be there.

      "Oral" auction might be the law when it comes to this type of sale.

      At least one has most of the month of October to shop for recreational land.  Not like there's anything else going on this time of year! :grin:

      Thanks for posting, Rick.  It might be worth looking at that list.

      Thanks for the info!!! Will be up there on 10/5-10/8, have been looking at the weather and I hope they are wrong because looks like rain... Have you ever tried fishing out on pike island area? Brother inlaw drove down there this summer and said there were quiet a few people fishing there.
