Wheel Bearing Hub Nut

Wheel Bearing Hub Nut

Are wheel bearings part of the car suspension?

The wheel bearing hub nut is a crucial part of the suspension and what gives you drive in your car. Without it, there is nothing to hold the cv drive shaft in place and - while the wheel won’t necessarily fall off - you will be running a serious risk of the driveshaft either falling out or snapping off entirely or destroying the cv drive shaft joints.

Adjusting the hub nut can affect the torque, so it is advisable to check your owner’s manual to make sure that you are maintaining the recommended specifications. Since hub nuts can often be difficult to remove and fit, it is also advised that you enlist the help of a mechanic to perform the repair. As specialists in the auto part field, we have all the wheel bearing hub nuts you would need to fix your vehicle.

Please keep in mind that if the installation is not carried out properly, they can become too tight and therefore will cause excessive wear to the bearing itself, ultimately causing it to fail. However, if the bearing is not tightened enough, the bearing will loosen itself up and the entire wheel may fall off.
