Your Eagle Wheel bearings are designed to perform important tasks in the suspension system of your vehicle. These allow the wheels to rotate at minimal friction. Further, the wheel bearings are capable of supporting the vehicle's weight. The wheel bearings must be in a near-perfect condition so that such functions are effectively brought about. The seals must be leak-free to keep the lubricant inside the bearings and contaminants out.
The wheel bearing hub is an important Wheel Bearing component for carrying the weight of your vehicle. This weight is transferred to the wheels as a rotational motion without generating friction. Inside the wheel hubs are either roller or ball bearings that help in bearing the vehicle's weight. On RWD vehicles having solid axles, the rear wheel bearings are placed on the axles. The front wheel bearings on older rear-wheel drive cars and trucks typically require "repacking" or regreasing every two years or 24,000 miles. Wheel bearings on modern vehicles are sealed and are not subjected to any maintenance.
If there is an occurrence of rumbling, growling, chirping or cyclic noise of any kind from the vicinity of the wheels while you feel the looseness or roughness as you raise the suspension and rotate the wheel by hand, then you are possibly having a bad wheel bearing. The worn out wheel bearings should be replaced at once since failure may cause the wheel to be detached from the vehicle, which is very dangerous. Controlling a three-wheeled vehicle at highway speeds is the feat best left to a trained stunt driver, that is why when funny noises generate from a wheel, the bearings should be checked right away.
A Wheel bearing noise is usually proportional to the vehicle speed. It does not change according to acceleration or deceleration. The noise may just change when turning, which may come louder or even quieter at certain speeds. The wheel bearing noises should not be confused with those produced by a worn outer CV joint on a FWD vehicle. A defective outer CV joint often makes noise when turning and not when driving straight ahead.
