front strut top bearings
Posted 19 July 2002 - 08:12 AM
I've sprayed oil and grease on mine in the past to "loosen them up a bit"
tires were cupped bad at one point. I replaced my front bearings that were getting "loose" after only 15k miles.
I've read in the past that bad struts could make the tires cup.
there's no signs of any leaks.
strut's are stuck in the highest adjusted position too... (one is) so they are all at max....
strut is getting noisy again... rotation at top bearing is choppy and makes a loud noise when it "lets go" from a hangup....
any thoughts on this one?
PS. I'll be driving this beast (82 wagon 4wd) 5k miles in August.....

just need to decide if I replace the whole works so I can lower the suspension down, or just replace the caps....
