Well after 88,000 miles the right front wheel has developed a little play in it indicating the wheel bearing is going out :sad: . I tried to find the replacement part on gmpartsdirect.com but they only show the rear hubs. What is the GM part number for the front hub/bearing? Are they the same for all four corners?

You're going to pay a hefty price for the GM replacement. I'd suggest checking at either http://www.rockauto.com/ or http://www.intense-racing.com/, first. If you really want the OEM hub, I show the part number as 12429204

Thanks for the response.
Do the Intense hubs last as long as the GM replacement hubs?

That's hard to say as most probably haven't run them that long. I bought one about a year ago, and it's fine. 2 others I had tried (one from NAPA, the other from Advance) the wheel speed sensors failed within 3 months.

I average about 40,000 miles/ year and I'd hate to have change them out again in a month or so.
I'm assuming that the hub is failing because when i have the wheel off of the ground I am able to move the whole wheel in and out while the other side doesn't move at all.
Would it be safer to replace both sides at the same time or just replace the one?

So, you have movement shaking the tire with your hands at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions? How about at 12 and 6? If it is just at the 3 & 9, it's more likely to be a bad tie-rod end. If 12 and 6, it could be a bad ball joint. Movement in all positions would likely be the hub.

The whole wheel assembly moves in and out along a z-axis plane. I am unable to get the wheel to move in independent directions at the 9 and 3 or at the 12 and 6 positions.

Interesting. I don't believe I've ever experienced one that moved just in that direction, without also moving in the x and y axis. The hub would seem to be suspect then. The only other thing that I can think of that would cause that is if the axle nut worked loose, which would be very unusual. Perhaps others may have a different idea.

About the only other cause I can think of is the "reputable" mechanic that installed the front rotors a couple of months back. Perhaps the person forgot to torque the nut correctly or perhaps the rotor assembly wasn't fully seated when the nut was reinstalled.

I'll dig into this more tonight when I change the oil.

To change rotors, they wouldn't have had to remove the axle nut. However, depending on your weather, if rust builds up on the hub and it is not cleaned off well, the wheel/rim can start to work loose because of improper torque. However, that should not cause the hub to move, and would cause quite a racket.

Ok, checked it again to verify my recollection of the situation. Here is what I found:

It really isn't moving in and out along the z-axis plane as I had remembered. It moves only in the 12 and 6 position which as you indicated could be a ball joint going sour. It also developed a new symptom tonight during the comute home: It's starting to pull to the left towards the crown of the road when traveling straight (no cross wind).

I guess I'll have take it in to get the alignment checked out.

Sorry about the confusion. Thanks for the help

Not a problem....my memory often fails me, too. :) Taking it in for an alignment is a good idea, not only because of the pulling, but they will be able to tell you exactly what is wrong. They won't be able to align it properly with any of those parts being bad.
