overheating Front Hubs due to seized front calipers!

Unread post by terrano2buck » January 24th, 2015, 2:40 am

Hey guys i just had issues with my front hubs getting real hot. Had it in to get the wheel bearings done. Still they were getting really hot. The problem was that the brake calliper slides were seized as nobody seems to service these things until something goes wrong. My hubs are now fine and fuel consumption is back in the 10's per 100 kms. Pays to get them checked and lubricated every couple of years during a service.
