jtv135 Just wanted to let y'all know that I did find the little issue that was causing the wheel to rock. My inner brake pad was bent therefore not allowing the brake rotor to sit fully against the wheel hub. Went ahead and put fresh pads on both sides. Backing to running like a champ now

jtv135 You know the rim being damaged isn't something I actually thought about. It is very possible as it rode several miles with damaged and missed wheel studs. I will check that tomorrow and see

bigbossd1030 And also try the other rotor.

bigbossd1030 Oh wait, I see what you are saying. Try a different tire on that axle. Maybe the rim is messed up?

Does it move at the balljoints then?

bigbossd1030 Does it rock when it's in the air? I would jack it up and rock it to see where the movement is actually coming from, like mentioned above. That's the only way to tell.

jtv135 Yeah everything is bolted on properly and torqued down.
08-18-2013 10:04 PM
bigbossd1030 Is the hub seated on all the way? The three bolts torqued on? I would guess the ball joints might be buggered up. If everything else is new and installed properly.

TSEJEEPERS A picture of your wheels would help too.
Personally I use open ended lug nuts.
I am a little confused where you say "you put the lugs into the hub".
Did you get a new unit bearing or are you trying to rebuild the one you had before?

jtv135 When I first noticed the issue I thought it was that when I put the lugs into the hub assembly that I just didn't get them seated completely. Then realized I had bottomed out the lug nuts. I went through 2 sets of lug nuts. So I know they are not bottomed out. I have disassembled everything again to make certain the studs were seated completely in the hub assembly. Got it all back together the other day and same issue. I will try and get some pics to show y'all tomorrow.

UltimatE Wheel bearing = hub assembly. OP says he replaced it.

You should tighten the lug nuts with the tire in the air, then torque to final spec when its on the ground, not sure if you're doing that. When the wheel rocks, look closely. Do the lug nuts and studs move with the wheel? Or not? If they don't, then your issue is likely that the studs are too long and your lug nuts are not tightening on the wheel but instead bottoming out on the studs. This of course assumes you don't have open lug nuts.

Pictures would help us diagnose a lot easier. Take pics of everything.
