  8. the play is really coming from the drum... there is no play on the shaft and the bearings.... it is the drum.... i will try putting washers or something on the nut that ceeps the drum in place.. the woble isnt coming from the ball joint y there.... i mean there is a slight loose but nothing to worry about compared to the drum ad wheel...... after ill chec what else i can do.. thanx..
  9. you mean the 4 botls on the drum? or the big nut in midlle? when i said whobles i meant the whole wheel and the drum.... the wheel dont whoble its selfe... it more lice the wheel and the drum all together that whobble even if all botls tieten up..
  10. hi need help with my big bear 350 2x4 1997... front wheels (both) whobles a lot...it is not the bearings i checed.... looc lice the dum brace... the drum is loose on the spline for the front shaft ( not 4x4).. lice i said i checed the bearings and their good....wondering if it could be wrong drums on it... or maybe bent drums wich not sure it could bent more licely breac but anyway i need help...when i put the shaft into the bearings all he way tru .. teh shaft doesnt move... so bearings good.... it is when i put the drum bac on and i attach the wheel on it....and i do have a manual and not too helpfull....of course the right thing to do would be to bring the qua to a dealer or mecanic.. but dont have a trailer and mostly no cash to pay someone to fix it.....i rather do it myselfe but i i dont no if i should buy new drums and their not cheap.... what could it be and what solution i have?? thanx.
