These assemblies not only include the wheel bearing, they also contain electronic sensors for ABS and traction stability systems. Current hub bearing inspections may involve:

Current hub bearing inspections may involve:

  • Line Graph Comparison
  • Scan Tool Diagnostics
  • Chassis Hearing Device
  • Dial Indicator to Determine Lateral Movement
  • Series of Road Test
  • Removal for a Hands-On Inspection
