Default Re: Question? Peened inner front wheel bearing

Why not repair it correctly and replace the spindle assy?? If the snout of the spindle has been staked, you cannot properly set the bearing preload. If the outer bearing fails, there is a strong potential to lose steering control. This should not be a costly repair however it should be a priority because of safety factor.
