    Need more info. If it is what I'm thinking, the hub bearings, then you wouldn't be able to use it as a 2WD either... The only thing I can think of is the bearing inside the spindle (the Torrington bearing). But that would mean the "outer" bearing you refer to would be one of the two hub bearings, which run even when in 2WD...

    the car is running nice, no problems at all, i've been running on rear wheel drive for a year, so i think its the bearings which have to do with the 4 wheel linkage only, sorry for not detailing too much but im not an expert

    If your wheel bearings were bad you wouldn't be able to drive the truck.

    Take it apart and find out what is broken and we can tell you how to get the parts.
