Usuaully for one if you can turn the wheel off the ground and it has alot a play, wiggle or shimmy....its bad. sometime it may be hard to turn or have a gritty feel as you rotate the wheel. You may also hear a noise when you turn.

Never had one go bad on my truck yet, but this is just what i heard around the forum and personal experiances at school.

You will generally know when it is bad. Whining noises and sometimes grinding noises. Like tjbiker said, lift the wheel and try to shimmy it. Check for play.
