When wheel bearings are becoming worn and need replacing you’ll notice a change in the handling; it may become vague and unpredictable over uneven surfaces. Left unattended the bearing can deteriorate quickly, resulting in a collapse or seizure. This is likely to stop you in your tracks.
Once this has occurred, any other bearings on the same spindle will have become damaged as well. For this reason, it is highly recommended that all bearings and seals are replaced at the first signs of wear.
Conveniently, you don’t need to hunt down each bearing and seal – all the parts you need for your wheel bearing replacement. All Balls Wheel bearing kits contain the bearings, any seals required, and sprocket carrier bearings in rear wheel kits for models that require them.
The price of a complete All Balls bearing and seal kit for one wheel can sometimes beat the price of one OEM bearing*.
