    I have a wha wha noise coming form what i think is my passenger side front wheel (gets faster when wheel spins faster) It sounds like some sort of bearing (or something) that needs to be greased. IT seemed to get a little worse when i went throught the mud last weekend, like i dried it out even more. I couldnt find any zerts or any place to grease. I have warn (i beleive) manual locking hubs (lockouts). I opened up the hub (a little) and it looked dry.

    Any sugestions, I'm stuck?????????????

    Please help

    Take off your tire and hubs, pull the brake caliper, pull the nuts that hold the brake rotor on, bearings are inside the rotor. It is actually not too hard. Just pay attention to how everything comes out. When you put it back together make sure you torque the nuts that hold the rotor on correctly. A Haines or Chilton manual will walk you right through it step by step.
