GT front wheel loose!
Just wanted to run something past you all.
I replaced all 4 Anti roll bar drop links on the weekend. Was a bit of a pain but managed it all in about 3 and a half hours. So not too bad I thought.
Anyway, when putting it back together I realised a bit of an issue with the near side wheel hub, which it seems may have been contributing to the knocking noises I had put drown to both ARB drop links being worn.
The hub feels like its loose. I'm able to rattle it from left to right, (also top to bottom too, but not quite so much)
I was thinking this would be due to a warn wheel bearing and am looking for a replacement part. As it seems I'll have to buy the hub/bearing kit for £70 or so, I wanted to check if there was anything else I might have overlooked.
I thought it might be the CV joint, but a friend suggested I'd hear knocking when on full lock if that was worn (there's no knocking on full lock).
Also checked all fixings and bushes I could see but nothing seems loose apart from the hub. Everything on off-side seems completely fine.
