    ok so i was driving around in the cemetary this mornin, and when i hit a pot hole or a wave in the road, i was getting almost like grinding/binding noise, that felt like it came from underneath me, but i think it maybe the front end? i havent checked if one of the hubs was maybe stuck in the locked position, but i will have my buddys dad show me how today, any idea what it is?..i know i blew up one of the tooths on a spider but havent looked around inside for anyother damage.....any idea why its doing that??? it only did it a few times, not every bump or wave in the road:confused: :confused: :confused: , if it is the front end, the 10bolt in the yard will be going in soon, but i just would like to here some feedback from the brotherhood

    Wheel bearings are shot. Water will break down the grease then they stop spinning smoothly. Take the hubs apart and check it's quick and easy first thing. They probably deserve some grease if you were playing in the water.

    well one of the hubs wasnt fully disengaged, so theres that problem, i`ll let ya know if we decide to dig into it, but i doubt it seeing as the front axle is gettin swapped out soon anyway

    hmm, today i swapped on the 31s so i could paint the centers on my 33s, and the noise seems worse? or maybe the howl of the 33s drowned the sound out a little?
