I had a dry spindle problem and the brass bushing looks toast. There are alot of brass flakes in the knuckle housing grease.:doh: Is that a problem. ?
Truck had recent (6 months ago) axle job done.

Thanks

Yes it is a problem but it is fixable (two totally different ways IIRC maybe more but 1- replace spindles with newer roller bearing type or 2 replace brass bushing itself if nothing else is injured in there)- give cruiserdan a call and politely ask for his advice and his parts. HTH. :cheers:
