Re: how to tell if axle bearing gone

Jack up the front or rear. Grab the tire at the 12 and 6 position. Try to move the wheel back and forth. If you want to check the tie rod ends grab wheel at 9 and 3 and try to wiggle.

Re: fixing bent bumper

Use some heat. Not too much and you should be able to bend it back into position. Remove all plastic first of course.

Re: Plastic Trim Restoration

Looks good. I have seen commercials for this stuff called "Wipe New". Kinda pricey at $20 a bottle.
