Interesting comment about the waste gate, the wastegate, when installed originally was bent around the axle, but to get it to fit the guy ground the interior of the bend, which left an open hole dumping exhaust gas onto the axle. They ended up replacing the axles and rotating tires and that seemed to fix it. The wastegate exhaust tube was fixed sometime ago however, but this mustíve caused enough damage to trash the grease and cause it to fail now. Is it common that wastegate exhaust damages parts?

And the wheels should be good to go.

Only option was to rebalance the tires but I havenít had an issue since the repair.
