Lol my wheel bearing was taking a dump. cost me 32 bucks, for seal, the one bearing cuz the race was still clean, and grease. How'd yours cost 220? I just replaced em in June, or July before I came out east, and the one just crapped out.

Well the entire bearing was shreaded and the things that hold it in place broke and my wheel almost fell off on the way to the garage pretty bad. I am pretty sure most of that cost was labor I'm not really technical when it comes to cars or trucks but i usaly know what is going wrong just not how to fix it XD

I love my truck, inherited/bought it. Thanks man. Just about to roll over 76000 tomorrow on the way to work lol That wasn't a misprint. 76k miles, bought it two years ago with 30200 on the clock. I kinda want a 2wd ext cab to slam and cruise lol I need to stop dreaming up projects and finish the ones I have.

Lol that's why my GMC is so beat. Owned my Sonoma since 03, and I have beat her to death. Now I drive a lot smarter, and I'm a stickler for maintenance! All in time she'll be back to her former glory! And the Ranger gets something done to her every week.

my Sonoma has the 2.2l, it will eat a 3.slow...you stand no chance. The torque in a 4.3l alone kills you lol So far carnage to the GMC one rearend, one tranny, one driveline, 2 alternators, 3 deer, an elk, a Jeep, A guardrail, got rear ended, hit and run on my truck, rear ended another Sonoma, um...shes abused lol But she still starts and drives like a champ.
