Wheel bearing went out on the driver's side. It made a loud "whirring" sound and I thought it was just the tire treads on the road. I can't believe how quiet it is now and it steers so much better. Just normal wear and tear I guess. Also had to replace the idler arm at the same time.

A gradually worsening roaring from the front of vehicle, after lifting front wheels off ground, obvious wheel bearing noise when you spun the wheel and up and down looseness when checking for wheel bearing play, fixed it myself.

The front right wheel bearing started making this annoying grinding noise and gets really annoying fast. Took to mechanic they told me it would be $900 told them ill do it myself. they tried to say the wheel bearing hub assembly will cost close to $300, but me as an avid ebayer I got the wheel hub assembly for $70 free shipping. Remember all your needs for parts got to ebay first!!! Save tons of money! Anyways while I'm on here i will tell you other problems that i hve with my blazer #1. wheel bearing bad #2. fuel gauge bounces erratically #3. 4wd front driveshaft u joint is bad #4. Blazer lacks horsepower bad (still haven't figured out what the problem is but I'm pretty sure its a clogged catalytic converter). #5 Rear wiper motor just makes loud grinding noise doesn't work. #6 Drivers door sags and is hard as hell to close. I keep readjusting it but a week later just sags again. Other than that I've hadn't had any other problems. And the thing is since I was 15years old all I have bought were Chevrolet's and an occasional Honda lol, but this is the only Chevy that I've had these problems although this is the newest model also. I've always bought the older 89-93 trucks and blazers. The best one was An 89' Chevy S-10 Blazer. Bought it for $200 and drove it for 6years with motor knocking the last 3years. only parts I had to buy for it was a motor mount and lower radiator hose. thats it. Sold it for $300 made a profit and it was in good shape, but overall I'm very disappointed in Chevrolet/Gm. I guess I'll go back to Honda cars. Never had a problem with them!!!!

  • 55,000 miles

When my 2000 Blazer reached 55000 miles, I heard a weird sound coming from the front end. I jacked up the car and gave a wheel a spin, and it sounded like bearings. I took it into the local dealer to have them take a look. They told me that my front wheel hubs were bad. Now on a 2000 Blazer these are sealed units, so you can't lubricate them in any way for maintenance. So, when they go bad, you have to replace them. The dealer gave me a quote to replace both front end wheel hub assemblies. Price alone for the hubs was almost $900, and they wanted another $500 to put them on. Then he hit me with more bad news. Since they had been going bad for a little bit, they caused other parts to wear prematurely. I was told that just replacing the wheel hubs would do no good. I would need to replace upper and lower ball joints, idler arm, and new tires since they were worn on the inside bad because of the hub failure, and then finally, a wheel alignment. They quoted me over $2500 for everything. At the time, I couldn't afford it, so I drove it home and had to look elsewhere for the answers. I found some new wheel hub assemblies on Ebay from a Cadillac dealership in Chicago for $$189 a piece. The same exact ones the Chevy dealer was selling for $450. I bought them, bought new upper and lower ball joints, new idler arm, and decided to try it myself. Replacing the wheel hub assemblies was fairly simple. I did each side in less than an hour. And to think they wanted to gouge me $250 per side to put them on at Chevy. I rented a ball joint press from my local autoparts store for a day
