I'm guestimating the torque: 180 pounds at just over two feet on a three foot bar. And it is the driver's side nut.

I am not 100 percent confident in the bearing, as well. That's why I am trying to get some opinions from others that have a bit more experience in this than I. Is the thing buggered or not, do you think? It was quiet then and it still is. I haven't tracked the car, yet. Although, I intend to do so unless some people suggest that it might be not a good thing to do with the current bearing.

I also thought the quote was a bit over the top. With prices like that, it just makes me want to do my own wrenching that little bit more.

By the way, what's the difference between the SKF and FAG bearing? $40 vs. $56 is kind of a substantial spread. Any operational differences?

The cars we love the best are the ones with human traits, warts and all.
