Dodge Wheel Bearing
As your Dodge is moving down the highway, a large amount of power is transferred to the wheels from the driveshaft. This creates a large potential for friction, and when added to the weight of the vehicle on the wheel, it is quite obvious that the Dodge wheel bearing is under constant stress. It is actually a large assembly, consisting of several bearings and a race that is designed to contain them, while allowing free movement. While the Dodge wheel bearing allows the wheel to spin freely, the force of friction will begin to take its toll on the bearings. Fortunately, the amount of friction is reduced with a good amount of lubrication, which comes from the axle assembly. After many years, however, it will become necessary to replace the Dodge wheel bearing. Usually, a grinding noise can be heard or a vibration may be felt as the part nears failure. The Dodge wheel bearing can be inspected by raising the suspected corner of the vehicle with a jack until the tire is off the ground. Then, grasp the tire at opposite ends. Push one hand forward and one backwards. The tire should not move at all, but if it does, it means that the Dodge wheel bearing is far too worn to be safe.
