Yup, the wheel bearing is toast. Retightened the axle nut and this is the result. Still silent though! Cheeky Lexus with a broken off license plate mount in the back, RIP F Sport grill.
Threw on a cheapo camber gauge dead center on the rotor, got the rotation level using the sight glass, and spun the knob on the back until it showed 0. This is so I can nail the alignment, at least close enough until the next one. I painted the knob so it can't be messed up, and painted the knuckle bolts just in case. Hopefully getting an alignment after FA gets their shit together and sends out those new lower mounts.
Learned that you can't just remove the rear calipers when your car is slammed. Lifting the caliper off the pads causes the handbrake bracket to hit the wheel well. Removing the bracket fixes this.
All off! That Honda ball joint separator took is amazingly handy. The DeWalt mid-range impact has plenty of grunt to remove the 30mm axle nut, I love that thing.
Rear suspension arm test. Rear and center arms are nice and taut, bushings seem fine. Trailing arm is a wet noodle. Should really replace that soon. Shame Toyota doesn't sell the bushings separately, I try to use OEM parts. Suggestions for bushings?
Have a bonus doggie. Little dude's getting old but he's still spunky for a 14 year old.
