    So, I think I have a bad wheel bearing, low pitched hum and slight vibrations coming from the driver front, gets worse when I turn left. Has gotten worse over the past week.
    Jacked up the front end of the truck
    driver front spins perfectly fine, no noises, no wobbles, no play up and down or side to side
    passenger side drags a little bit at the same point each rotation, sounds like a caliper dragging (which I suspected I had, started before the current noise and vibration), but other than that spins fine
    Manual hubs, unlocked, CVs arent dragging. I have no clue what this could be, any ideas?

    I drove to the Ford Parts lot in my Tacoma and the ol' lady behind the counter looks at me and spouts out "You know this is a Ford dealership?"
    The thought of "no $hit, sherlock!" came to mind but I thought better of it and just left it.
    Still got the right stuff...

    Probably not. However, I will reinforce and fix the factory welds around the lower shock mount tabs.

    I guess I missed it, why the muffler and a resonator? Do you also have a CAT?

    Why not all new LCAs? The rivers in the lca are known to crack so piece of mind for another 200k says to get new arms completely.

    Got a wheel bearing question for y’all!
    I got new Toyota 4x4 hubs, bearings etc.
    I dropped off all my new OEM parts to be assembled in some Prerunner knuckles at the Toyota dealer. Then the service advisor called to tell me they were the “wrong parts”. They were both convinced you couldn’t replace a 2wd hub with a splined 4wd hub. Then I argued with him and the technician about whether or not the knuckles were the same.I convinced them to “try”.
    Picked them up today.
    R side has rotational drag, left seems ok?
    Neither spacers turn freely.
    Posted about this in Lunchtable thread, talking to @Empty_Lord and @eon_blue , was suggested I post here.
    Thought? Good news? Bad news? Arson?

    Are your originals showing fatigue cracks at the rivets? Our trucks have similar mileages and similar experiences.

    My originals do have cracks, but the cracks are all related to the lower shock mount tabs. My rivets show no signs of metal fatigue.

    I am pretty sure the eimkeith kit is designed to address the scenario you are asking about. @cynicalrider

    I haven't seen anything yet, but I recall @Dirty Pool had some pictures of it. And with how we use these things and how many cracks we do find.... Amy opportunity for virgin steel seems like the good move to me.

    I have both cats. But its a 14” short muffler exiting behind the cab, and I cruise at 3700 rpm on the highway. Hoping to avoid drone.

    exactly this. Plus it makes it slide easier on shit, and for the price it’s cheap insurance.

    The resonator is a nice addition and will definitely remove any drone and still offer good flow thru. I added one along with a new 18" magnaflow to my rig. Quieted it down significantly. But its starting to come back a little.

    I had previously removed the upstream cat and with a blown out high mileage 18" magnaflow in there, it was loud, real loud. Now you can still hear it but the neighbors no longer hear me coming a couple of blocks away.
