    an old member i know wanted me to pop this up here to see if you guys have heard anything about this or seen this. anyways on a trip up to kentucky/ west virginia he had his driverside wheel bearings come out. the truck only has 70k miles on it though and didnt know if it was a regular mishap or if it was somethin else. oops almost forgot to tell what the truck is. it's a 2002 silverado extended cab 2wd. thanks for your time.

    somehow the cap was missing off the back and they literally shot out of the assembly. it was interesting and horrible to see at the same time.

    sorry to ask so late but what was the main purpose for the van? was it a church van or cargo or just regular travel? reason being is his silverado is mainly a travel car type deal. never really uses it for much else and most of the miles are highway miles. thanks for your time. :D
