A quick question, I have been suspecting I may have a front hub or two going bad. (2008 TRD DC 4x4 w/ ~58K miles) because last year as I drove down the road I had a shimmy that sorta felt like a wheel was out of balance. (This was amplified when I put my wheel spacers on which really brought it to my attention.)
I took the wheel spacers off, and I had the tires rotated and balanced, but the shimmy never went away... So after an inspection, I noticed I needed front brake pads, so thinking that maybe I caused the shimmy by possibly overheating and warping a rotor, I ordered a new set of rotors for the front, and installed them with the new pads.
At first, with new brakes and rotors the shimmy went away, but now that I have been driving it for a while (~3 mos), and as the front brakes have worn a bit, it seems that the shimmy is starting to re-emerge. Naturally now, I am suspecting the hubs even more.
Can anyone tell me what is the process to inspect/verify the hubs are good (or bad)?? I tried the ol' grab the top of the wheel and shake to listen for clunks and rattles method, but nothing..
Please advise, as I may be ordering two from you.
