    Ok changed the bearing in the 10bolt(front) on one side and regreesed the otherside because they were still good. I knew the hub was a little tight but dident think to much of it untill the WHEEL started locking up. So I pull over and look around and drive it about a mile down the road before I decide to quit BTW it was SMOKING BAD NOW when I jacked up the front end dosent drag at all and feels right but I took teh hub off and tryed to tighten it all down and even tryed to make it to tight agin and you cant it stays loose I have no clue whats wrong did I eat the bearings on that side? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
