    76 k5, 350/350/203, d44 front locked 14bff rear locked 35x12.5x15 3"spring lift, 3" body lift otherwise stock all around. I cant keep my front left wheel bearing tight. i blew the hub out on a wheeling trip and im not shure if it was cause the wheel bearing came loose or i just blew it out on the trail. i think it might be the spindal. i just wanted a sencond opinion on it. thx :angry1: :dunno:

    just thinking out loud, but is the adjuster nut engaging that locking ring? The little 'nipple' that sticks off the inner locknut, that adjusts the bearing. Is it engaging one of the holes in the locking ring that has like 785 holes in it?

    I know these arent correct terms, but I think you can understand what im talking about.

    My buddy mixed the two nuts up and had the same problem. The inner most nut should have the lock pin on it
