I got my tires rotated. The guy showed me how my front passenger wheel was not solid and moving very slightly. He said I need a new wheel bearing.

Maby someone here could help me with that (the good people at the BP speed shop)? I also need a new motor mount and a replacement oil pan gasket...

Anyone down?

Wheel bearing is very easy. You have a warm place to do it? If so I'm willing to help.

4 bolts and a plug. It's like 10 minutes tops
I did 2 wheel bearings on a Monte Carlo. Hollly fuck, they did not want to come off. Ended up drilling out 4 of the bolts, and taking an air chisel to the head of another one after I burnt up my drill bit.

i havent had any issues with the timken or skf bearings....IF the hub nut is properly tightened for the right preload....most failures i see of new parts are frm the axle nut being too tight/loose
