    So les schwabs told me my driver side wheel bearing is going out and I was wondering how long I can drive on it for and what happens when it does fail. Any signs that's its getting really bad?

    You probably dont want to drive too long. I think some people went 20-30K from first grinds on turns to grind/vibe always.

    mine started about 3 weeks ago with a vibe(that you can definitely feel). I'm trying to drive it the least amount possible(ride my motorcycle) but it keeps raining. I drive about 55 mph max and probably have about 300 miles on it and i can tell its getting worse. Planing on fixing it tomorrow because it's better to just fix the wheel bearing than anything else it may take with it.
