2001 DHS various small issues.


Recommended Posts

Took my 2001 DHS in today and got the plenum boot replaced (Thanks to those of you who helped me to identify that was the problem). They did a check on various parts of the car and came up with the following:

Both front hubs loose ($1300!?)

Left front sway bar end link missing ($90)

Steering wheel position sensor ($465 - causes service stability system message)

I am really wondering how it would be $1300 for the front hubs. Also, I am wondering what issues these problems might cause. Any help is appreciated.

$1300.00 for front wheel bearings is a robbery! Not sure what the diagnosos was to determine bad bearings. Are the wheels loose or is there vibration?

Not sure what type of sway bar end link your car has but according to Rockauto.com, it has the traditional type like a RWD car would use. That's strange since the FWD cars use a style that has ball studs and mounts to the strut tower. Then again, I've not been under my '05 Deville yet to take a look... Anyway, the part is less than $10.00 from Rockauto.com

What a joke, you can buy the hubs for about $100 a piece, $1300 is a crazy price, the R&R job is pretty easy

No, the wheels don't vibrate at all and don't seem to be loose. If I do end up fixing this I guess i'm gonna do it myself because $1300 is just stupid.
