D30 wheel hub

Can they be bad, but not exhibit any issues upon inspection? When I bank left on the freeway my vibrations seem to fade away, but once I straighten out it is back to vibrating!

Yes they can. They can be a pain to diagnose which side too.

Where do you feel the vibration?

What about when you bank right?

Hmmmmmm..........

Seems like all the vibration is coming from drivers side front. Banking left is the only time the vibrations lessen up. Banking right is the same. It is a horrible vibration too. Something you would think would be evident upon inspection.

Remove the short stub shaft and see if it changes.

No, don't really do that. It could end up bad

What I meant was do you feel it in the steering wheel or the seat of your pants.

Both.....going to replace the passenger side today. If the vibrations are still there I will have a Tranny Tom take a look at my transmission as a possible source.....

If the unit bearing is bad and you remove the stub shaft, the bearing could seperate while your driving. Would not be good at speed.
