So in my previous post I stated that I was hearing something rotating from the inside of the car, while I was driving. Every time I slowed down, the sound would slow down. (A rotating sound ) I figured it was bearing!

I got it checked, and BAM it was the bearings and wheel hub on the right rear tire!
so I had my new mechanic fix that and checked all tires! Luckily I only had to change one wheel hub


So the total price for the change out was

$ 299.31 for the wheel bearing and hub assembly

And

$ 119.0 for the labor
Part : Rw20-86

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

you may want to price name brand replacement bearings and u-joints at several on-line sources and look into DIY videos
while your there CHECK out the brakes, pads, rotors calipers.

https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/chevrolet

If one rear wheel bearing wore out, its time for putting the corvette up on jack stands or a lift, and careful disassembly ,
of the related drive train and suspension, bearings,
too carefully inspect,
repack or replace the other three wheel bearings and replace all six u-joints,

logically the components have all traveled the same distance, if they are all original components thus have similar wear induced

yes it sucks and its more work, yes it costs more money,
but doing maintenance now,
sure beats the crap out of loosing some critical component under stress at speed,
where it at best leaves you stranded in the boondocks,
or at worst causes a serious accident

IF YOU CAN,T SMOKE THE TIRES AT WILL,FROM A 60 MPH ROLLING START YOUR ENGINE NEEDS MORE WORK!!"!
IF YOU CAN , YOU NEED BETTER TIRES AND YOUR SUSPENSION NEEDS MORE WORK!!

I just had the same problem with my Left rear and replaced it with a unit from Rockauto. Bought 2 cause sooner or later I'll do the right side also. Think it was about 280 with shipping to my door for 2 bearing assemblies and new axle nuts. The car is quiet again. Yes!

Lucky, OEM

I found NOS OEM hub on Ebay. I was pretty skeptical too. At $135 delivered vs the $300+ for the OEM i figured I'd try it.
My shop (Corvette Masters, Maitland FL) verified that they gave all appearance (look, markings, packaging) of being true OEM. They did the install for ~$135...I watched them...it was worth every penny as there was much grunting and gnashing of teeth getting the old one off.
No guarantee offered as I brought "eggs to the restaurant". Even if I'd had them do it twice, I was ahead.
That was 3+ years ago...no grumbling, no more noise.
Happy happy.

how many miles

So, on average, how many miles are on these cars that require new hubs?
