View Full Version : Keep losing bearing buddies

07-05-2011, 03:31 AM
Hey guys just in the last few weeks I've been having problems with the bearing buddy on the right wheel.
After driving just a few miles it backs itself out of the hub and I have to take a hammer to it and pound it back in.
If I go much farther than that it will totally fall out of the hub. I've already lost 2 of them.
I can't figure out why this is all of a sudden happening? I've never had this problem before.
I'm wondering if I put red loctite on it and then pound it in if that will help?
If you have any other suggestions please let me know !!!!!

I think the loctite is worth a shot.

Sounds like your hub is worn and it a needs to be replaced. Try the loctite first, as it is cheaper.

try taking a punch and putting dimples from the inside of the bearing buddy out... it will help create a tighter fit and hold them in... had a trailer with same issues, once the hubs heated up it would throw out the bearing buddies....

second on the hub being shot, try the dimple and locktight recomendations as its the cheapest option
