Default What Parts do I need

My wheel is bent and I know the wheel bearings need to be replaced, my friend said the bearing broke in the a frame. So name the parts so I can get them from the pull apart. It is a 1993 chevy blazer s10 with 2wd. Thanks, Del[IMG][/IMG]

Sorry it's not that simple. You need to take some stuff apart to see what you need. A wheel bearing doesn't break in a frame. You need to take off the wheel, then the brake caliper, then the bearing cap, the cotter pin, the outer wheel bearing and then the rotor. After you take all that off, you can remove the inner wheel bearing and see what's wrong. By the look of the picture (which really doesn't show much) you should be looking at ball joints as well.
If you start taking things off, take pictures as you go and we can talk you through it. When you're dealing with brakes and steering components it really needs to be done right.
Save your pictures to make it easier to put things back where they belong.

that looks like way more than ball joints...

my guess is a bent upper control arm and bent lower ball joint, and probably the spindle or tie rod end as well. your friend may have meant the control arm bushing (not bearing).

as already stated you'll need to take everything apart and check to see what is really bent. fortunately, junkyard parts should be able to get you back rolling fairly quickly and easily provided none of the suspension mounts on the frame are bent.

Jack it up and see if hte wheel wobbles in the breeze. BAll joints or broken spindle would be my guess. But like posted above, you need to take the tire off to see the parts. It could very well be a broken control arm. But you wont know until you look.

Were not Carnac!

so are you?

The tonight show just isn't the same wihout Johnny. Don't get me wrong Jay is OK. But Johnny was the man. I used to watch that show just about every night.

For you younger guys. If you haven't figured it out by now. Johnny Carson used to do a skit on the tonight show. His caracter was Carnac. He would hold a sealed envelope up to his head, give the answer, and then open the envelope and ask the quesiton. One of the funniest skits ever done on tv.

Ok, I have some pics of the underside. A friend told me to get a Top A Frame. It runs 35 at the pull a part place, so I am going to pic it up tomorrow.

All I can see in the latest pics is your lower control arm, sway bar and tie rods.
You really need to remove the wheel if you want us to see your upper control arm (Top a frame?)
