    Weird shake on my K5 from 58+ mph. Put the rear 14BFF up on jack stands, and it looks like the center of the drive flange and hub are not turning true. Is it possible to have a set of out of true or bent hubs? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    New bearings/races when I rebuilt the axle before the swap. I checked the spindle nut, both sides are torqued tight, so what gives?

    It's a 1980 CUCV axle.

    If I need new hubs, where's the best place (outside of the stealership) to order a pair?

    Are you sure it's the hub? Could it just be the drum that's making it look like the hub is out-of-round?

    I'm prety sure it's the hub. I sighted the outer edge of the hub at the flange against a stationary object. You can see 1/8" or so as the hub/wheel turns. Guess I need to locate some new hubs, or???

    Pull the hubs off and check to see if the races are in all the way and straight. Maybe give em a tap to make sure and then re check to see if they spin true.
