WHAT ARE WHEEL BEARINGS?
Wheel bearings are an important part of a vehicle's suspension system. They make sure that the wheels move smoothly and support the thrust load. It also helps lessen friction between the wheel and axle. If you notice steering issues, or hear grinding or creaking sounds or weird vibrations while driving, you need to have the suspension checked. If you do a lot of traveling, these components will get worn out sooner than most. If bad bearings go ignored, the safety of those in the car is severely compromised. Accidents can be avoided if immediate care is taken. Wheels can come off in some instances or there can be a complete lack of control of the steering wheel. Proper maintenance is imperative to ensure the safety of those in the car as well as others on the road.
