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

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.
