Front Wheel Alignment

I just got done changing the front bearings on my 1990 S-10 Blazer 4x4 and the front suspension feels really loose. Is it nessesary to get a front wheel alignment after replacing the bearings? What should I check for?

Re: Front Wheel Alignment

Could you describe what you mean by "loose" a little more? You shouldn't need a allignment if you only replaced the front bearings. If you messed with the ball joints at all, I would reccomend an allignment. Check the 3 bolts that hold the bearing on to the spindle and make sure they are torqued to factory specs. Also, make sure your sway bar and shock fasteners are installe correctly. Good luck.

Re: Front Wheel Alignment

I replaced all of the ball joints also. The front end feels like it wants to wander all over the road. I'm not sure how else to describe it.?? It's not pulling or anything, that's why i'm not sure about it. I probably will take it in to someone just to be sure about it.
