Have a horrible squeal noise from the left front, upon inspection is seems that there is a bearing inside the knuckle/spindle that has failed. If I take the drive flange off the noise goes away, its only there if the axle spins. I can also move the outer axle shaft where it enters the knuckle up and down excessively. Does anyone have a part number for that bearing and the seal? Has anyone else had one fail on them?

Well, I'm confused. :huh:

You have axles "spinning" fine, bearing failed, now bearing reported fine, AND excessive clearance with the outer shaft moving up and down excessively. On the latter...was that just because the shaft end was no longer supported due to hub removal?

Using the diagrams, can you provide the part nomenclature concerns / failure area for us to better assist you?

At this point you haven't ID'd the problem in other words, have you?

Is the problem in the knuckle or it's mounts maybe? :confused:

Taking the drive flange off disconnected the axle from the wheel flange. Spinning only the wheel flange hub produces no noise and is tight. Spinning the axle only creates the nasty squeal. don't worry I got it all figured out, your picture is a 2wd mine is a 4wd. 14, 16, and 17 in fordem's picture. Notice the missing pieces in your diagram.

The axle goes through the center of 13 and rides in bearing 14 the axle is only connected to the wheel flange by the drive flange 4. The wheel flange has its own bearing which rides on the outside of 14.

I do this for a living, just for Chrysler. I have no access to Suzuki service info so I came here. the online stuff is very misleading because they all use the diagram you gave which is 2wd.

I know it's been a while since this post... Do you recall if you re-used the spindle washer? Part 15 in the above diagram? I didn't find one when I took mind apart.

that spindle washer should be there, its actually a thrust washer, not just a spacer.

Thanks for the reply, that's good to know. Looks like at some point in time there must have been work done and it was not put back in. Probably part of the reason my needle bearing was ruined - Now to try to find one without waiting months for shipping...
