I have a 93 caprice and I know this isnt air related although it has air..... when I make left hand turns it sounds like my wheel is going to snap off... when I shake my car my drum is really loose on the rear axel... it feels like the wheel is going to come out does anyone know what this could be? I checked lug nuts and they are snug as possible and the drum seems like it still has a lot of play....

if you could helpo i wold appreciate it


thanks

I'm not super familiar with that car but it sounds to be a loose bearing. I dont know where or what type bearing is back there, but I imagine its some type of drive axle bearing... that might help a little

thanks alot... I will let you know what it looks like when I take it apart tommorrow. I am just not looking forward to it because I here its a lot of stuff in there and that I should replace all the bearings on both sides?

thanks

now when it wiggles is it up and down like it's loose in there

or is it a wobble like you can actualy grap opposite ends of the drum and wiggle then back and forth

the play seems like its like in and out play like push and pull on the brake. I think I may have found the problem there was something floating inside my brake on one side thats not on the other sideseems like a tool was left in there by a mechanic perhaps... I am putting it back to gether and seeing if it fixed the problem
