    Front end GURU\'S

    Ok here is the deal..
    I just ditched the sway bar tonight /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gifand in the process I was pushing on the front side ot the blazer and I heard a popping sound and could see the hub moving a little like the rim was loose /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif...So I took the hub apart and then tightened it back up and put it all back together and went for a ride and now it pulls to the left when I brake /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif...WTH..mike

    COUld you give us a better description of what was moving? First of all, what were you "pushing on"? The bumper? Or something in the supension?

    Are you sure the play in the front wheel isn't ball joints/tie-rods? When the last time you re-packed your bearings? It sounds to me like you overtightened your front hub......
