Default Re: Front Wheel Free Play Inspection

Well, I think it's the front wheel hub bearing. Here's why. I removed the hub from the knuckle spindle assembly. When I removed it I put my little pinky into the bearing. It seems that the bearing has 3 distinct sections. A front, middle and back section. I think the front/back are the seals and the middle is the actual bearing. When I tried to wiggle things the front/back seemed solid, but the middle section moved noticeably. I could actually look inside the opening and see the edge of the middle section as it moved around.

Everything else in the suspension assembly seems pretty solid. Very slight movement in some of the bushings.

Seems like the prudent thing is to replace the front wheel hub ( not going to try to just replace the bearing ). Am I missing something.......??

Don't laugh....please. I just discovered that what I called the middle section of the bearing is actually a spacer between the outside and inside bearings. The bearings actually turn very easily and appear to be good. I don't understand why Club Car says that if you attempt to rock the wheel and hub assembly back and forth, and it moves, it is a worn bearing and the hub assembly needs to be replaced.
Thoughts anyone?

OK......last reply, I promise.
It appears that the problem is much simpler than I thought. I noted that the leaf spring was sticking down below the bracket. I removed the bolt/bushings that go through the spring. They absolutely crumbled. Off to some local spots to try and find replacement bushings.
