Wheel Bearing Services

Wheel Bearing Glossary:
The wheels on your vehicle should operate in a smooth manner whether you are going fast or slow. When there is damage to the wheel bearings, the drive is no longer smooth as friction will build up. This friction can then break down the wheel bearings and cause wear and tear on the axle. To understand the parts of the wheel bearings system check our short glossary:
- Hub assembly: Connection between the brakes and drive axle. May contain brake sensors.
- Spindle: Carries the hub and attaches to the suspension system in the vehicle.
- Bearings: Small metal balls which allow the wheels to operate smoothly.
