Default Replace rear wheel bearings

Hi!

My colorado rear wheels makes a loud sound when I go into bumps. When I pull them when the car is on a lift the wheels move in and out from the axle - but not towards the front or rear of the car as the typical syndrom of bad rear wheel bearings does.

Has anybody changed rear bearings and know anything of how the counstruction works?

Thinking of buying a Haynes manual but not sure that area is covered.

So what makes you think your wheel bearings are bad.

A small amount of play is normal.

I have this exact same problem... What did you do to fix it? I have about 1/8" of play in and out on both rear wheels.

In and out play is normal on most solid rear axles. The C-clip that holds the axle in has a little play in the groove that it sits in. Normal.
