Re: Front Wheel Bearing Hub Failure Analysis
Our police car mechanic used to have a shelf full of hubs for our Crown Vic police cars. The hubs would have an indeterminant life span. Some would last 40-50 thousand miles, others over 100,000 miles.
Despite the price tag, about $100.00 each when I retired 4 years ago, the part was considered expendable. Replacement took about 20 minutes with a hoist and no other complications.
