You mean turning up the radio won't make the problem disappear?

What finally brought this to light?

Did a wheel fall off? Looks like it might have.

A university friend had a front wheel fall off a well used Plymouth Valiant. Fortunately they weren't going very fast at the time. Seems there had been a noise for quite a while.

I have absolutely NO sympathy for people who are too lazy or too stupid or too cheap to buy tools and actively engage in a preventative maintenance regime.

You mean people who ignore mechanical problems.

Not everyone can change out a wheel bearing themselves.

Well, I'm not aware of a PM schedule for FWD bearings. You wait for them to make noise, then you replace them. You do need to check periodically for split CV boots, but it's not like front wheel bearings on RWD vehicles, where those need repacking once in awhile.

Speaking of which, what did the last of the RWD vehicles do, going into the 2000's? I presume 2WD trucks use some sort of sealed bearing, but I suspect Panther chassis kept with non-sealed bearings.

I can't imagine driving on this when it was only half this bad. Heck I can't stand driving on wheel bearings once they start making noise.
