How do I know if the hub bearings are bad or the whole hub

Customer Question

How do I know if the hub bearings are bad or the whole hub assembly? I have speed wobbles at 60 mph or above. The mechanic is charging too much for something that looks like I can do myself

Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.

I will do my best to assist you.

i wouldnt think a wheel bearing would cause a wobble..i would think your problem is the tires,wheels or a cv joint.

if a bearing is bad it will be making a roaring/vibration when driving
