WHEEL BEARING REPLACEMENT
Does your vehicle make a whining noise especially when turning or maybe even a steering wheel vibration ?
UMR Engines Brisbane can diagnose your vehicle noises to establish where the noise is coming from. A lot of people assume they have a wheel bearing noise, but in matter of fact it could just be tyre related.
UMR Engines can remove & install your wheel bearings, from complete hub assembly, tapered cone type bearings & press in style wheel bearings. UMR Engines only uses high quality & trusted wheel bearing manufactures for all 2wd and 4wd applications including swivel hub (tractor joints) on some model 4wd vehicles. Our most popular swivel hub (Tractor Joint) (knuckle Joint) that we replace is on a Toyota Land Cruiser 78, 80, 90 & 100 series.
