Having problems with your 1999 Toyota 4Runner ?
I think I have a bad front wheel bearing. There is a light grinding noise that comes and goes while driving straight and seems to be more prevalent when lateral force is applied during a turn. What do u think? Btw it is 4 wheel drive.
Yes sounds like a wheel bearing needs replaced look inside the wheel at the hub see if you see greese around it any greese means needs replaced make sure do it soon cause wheel bearing will let the tire fly off hope this helps best way to check these is jack up one wheel grab tire and wiggle it up and down and if any movement needs replacement dangerous can wiggle it side to side too hope this helps
Alot of times you can check front bearings by jacking up the front end and checking for play by pulling out on one side of the tire at a time. Try top to bottom, then right to left. Be sure to leave one side of the vehicle on the ground to prevent steering play.
