Rear Wheel Bearing noise

Just did a front wheel bearing on my CGT 2 weeks ago.  Was so bad it was
causing dash trim to rattle.  Started to make noise about 5 years and maybe
15-20k miles ago.  Nice and quite now.

IMO a noisy bearing will last for years, longer than you will be able to
stand the howl. BTDT for 2 years, many K miles. I have successfully relubed
these bearings for greater than new life, but you must disassemble and
inspect the outer race to insure that it is in suitable shape. See my old
post, Wheel Bearing Postmortem.
