2001 Kia Sportage Question: I WAS TOLD MY FRONT BEARING OR BEARINGS (NEVER SPECIFIED) NEEDED REPLACEMENT

 

Question

WHEN I TALKED TO THE SERVICE WOMAN SHE SAID THEY WOULD HAVE TO DO A SUSPENSION CHECK TO SEE EXACTLY WHICH BEARING(S)NEEDED REPLACEMENT. EVIDENTLY THERE ARE INNER AND OUTER BEARINGS. IF THEY DID NOT DO A SUSPENSION CHECK AT THE TIME, HOW WOULD THEY KNOW I HAD BAD BEARINGS. I DO NOT NOTICE ANY COMPROMISE IN MY CAR'S DRIVEABILITY OR STEERING. IT ONLY HAS 62,000 MILES ON IT.

    Maybe inner/outer tie-rods? Any noise while driving above 45MPH?

    You are right. They should have been able to tell you especially if they were already looking at the car. We would be happy to take a quick look at it for you.
