Default 1999 Outback Sport - 10 wheel bearings blown.

Anyone else have severe wheel bearing problems?

BTW, exploding bearings at 75MPh do not make for an easily controllable vehicle.

I'll bet they're not being installed properly. There was a notice sent to the dealers about this. Some dealers were over torquing them, IIRC. I'm not sure if it's in the form of a TSB or not.

I'd think that as well, but -6- dealerships? Subaru's probably suggesting using legacy bearings since they know there's a flaw in the bearing design. Do I sense a cover up? I think I do.
