I'm going to order the bushing and see if it fixes it. If it doesn't fix my vibration I can't see any harm in installing the bushing, it's better than the needle bearing for sure. Did you notice if your CV axle was worn from the bad bearing? I read a couple guys on the 2nd gens recommended replacing the CV axle as well. Anyways, I'm glad I stumbled on the thread for this, I was about to spend a bunch of money and have the wheel bearings replaced, a real PITA of a job.
Yikes! The needle bearing is definitely a good way to narrow down the list of possible issues, and not too bad of a job. I personally haven't looked at the cv that closely, but it is actually out right now (torn boot, used as spare). will check that and let you know. Honestly I doubt it will show wear as the lift was only on for a month before I addressed the issue
Let me know if you have any questions about the job.. Sounds like you found the thread. So that should cover most of it.
