my '82 4x4 is making a slight vibration on the drivers side, accompanied by a quiet rumbling sound when I go over 50 kph.

could this be a bad wheel bearing? its also leaking a bit at the axle seal so I think Im gonna rip it apart and take a look, but I want to have all the replacement parts needed before I tear into it.:dontknow:

get a whole rebuild kit,if one side is gone theres a good chance the other will go soon just my 2 cents [cheers]

in any case .. a leaking seal means a repair ..

so best to take it apart , and see whats going on in there ..

ah, sorry...forgot to specify

its the front axle.

I look into getting a rebuild kit and see if theres anything out of place inside
