right front wheel bearing went out
:feedback: drove through some water the other day on some flooded streets and it must have washed out the bearing, Has this happened to anyone.

I also noticed my 06 Hemi is having sime suspention groaning any idea what to do about that?

I've never had that happen to me in all the years that I've been driving. I've driven through the thunderstorms of the Prairie Provinces, the salt-ridden streets of Ontario/Quebec and the pothole layden roads of the Maritimes and I never experienced that. Bearings are a wear and tear item so it would've been starting to fail for quite some time.

Regardless, it's time to replace the bearings and I'd recommend replacing the entire hub assembly.

That seems like a pretty unlikely scenerio. Chances are it was nearly gone anyway.

I agree ^^^ with that. How many miles on your truck?

The "groaning" could be almost anything, including a shock, a bushing, a spring spacer or that bearing.

It's a sealed bearing . I can't see that happening . Are you sure you have a bearing noise ?
