    If you're clicking it could be a u-joint in the front axle shaft or your front drive shaft.

    I replaced both wheel bearings on my 12 JKUR and things went together without issue. I also had new u-joints pressed in both front axle shafts while it was apart, replaced brake pads and complete brake fluid flush/bleed.

    At start up, the ABS and TC light popped up and remained after d/c the battery briefly. Went for a short drive and all lights off so I'm feeling okay there.

    The problem I'm having is a pretty noticeable pull to the left after installing the wheel bearing, etc. I'm not entirely sure how this item would impact my steering. Any ideas or suggestions?
    Maybe your steering wheel was recentered when you bearings were bad and it needs adjusting again. Could also be that the new bearings are putting more pressure on worn ball joints, TRE’s, etc? Just a wild ass guess.

    Are these the best wheel bearings to run bigger tires?

    No wheel bearings are the 'best' for running larger tires, but Timken has a good solid reputation.

    Is 36mm socket correct size for axle nut? How come when I Google, some says 35mm, and some says 36mm? I have 2015 JKUHR.

    I can’t say with 100% certainty. If I had to guess, I’d say yes. I followed this write up to do mine.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
