    Default the good Ol hub assembly

    I've had both of my hubs go out on my 2006 chevy z71, with 65,000 mile on the truck. Is this a common thing for these model trucks. I am running 33's and cranked torsion bars, but I don't think that has much of a affect because my first hub assembly went out before it went out. So I was just thinking how mnay of yall had your hubs go out..

    Both of mine went out on my '03 Avalanche at about the same mileage as you...

    yeah makes me mad my 98 chevy i had was rock solid, and i actually tried to tear the thing up and it kept on going.. I cranked my spindles up all the way will that cause my hubs to go out? Because one of my friends said it would and my cousin said it wouldn't soo what is it guess yes it will or it wont effect it? If so i'll be cranking it down a little to put less tension on the hubs...

    even if it is a common problem, i would try to get rid of the cranked torsion bars somehow. maybe aftermarket bars if you don't already have them
