Ctt 06 115,000km Got some vibration and rumbling that developed over the past 2,000km, usually up around 100-150km, if you hammer it acceleration wise it feels worse. Maybe not associated is the passenger side will knock loudly if I hit a speed bump fast as the suspension is compressed. I've strip that side replaced the upper control arm which was worn on the ball joint, also rebuilt the driveshaft with new boots and grease. All looks OK and tight. Alignment was done also Ok. Tyres are fairly new about 5,000 km max, so will balance and rotate first and alignment check again before going any further for the vibration and rumble. The suspension knock I'm thinking lower control arm inner bushes or top mount bush is smashed to pieces inside the strut? (Fyi cardan shaft new at 80,000km and not felt in the rear and centre, all front end feeling coming) What do you reckon guys?
I need to do my wheel bearings as they're starting to howl despite having no play. Since they're a fairly cheap part, I might as well do all of em at once. Am curious as to whether anyone has opinions or rather facts on the quality of the bearing manufacturers: F A G, NTN or SKF. All are OEM suppliers. All have been around for over 100 years and all are well known. Are there any design differences that would make one more durable than the other? EDIT: The site automatically blocks out the word F A G. It's the name of the bearing manufacturer in this case and not the insult lol. Any chance a mod could override that incase people want to search for a similar issue in the future? We're all grow-ups here afterall :).
