    I dealt with lots of rust issues in Mo. but since I have been here, none at all. If I see a vehicle with surface rust it is from the coast areas.

    Wow replaced driver's side bearing hub and rotor and semi metallic brake pads . I'm changing out ceramic pads they were 1/2 left but had stress cracks thru them in 3 places and rotor had a blue color to it . And grease was like running out of bearing hub on the back .. I'm thinking bearing was heating up .. they were original front bearings 180,000 miles .. I can tell by the rust on hub surface right by the CV axel it was over 1/8 inch thick and took 16 inch braker bar to brake 3 hub bolts loose.
    Only changing driver side.. Steering ,ride are perfect and 4x4 noises are gone it fixed a bunch strange sounds and it coasts like big time now . Went from 19 mpg to 22 mpg on highway . After I fix passager side it will be better yet . Now After I seen all these small issues I'm going to check the rear brakes also and parking brake .
