Re: Spindle vs Hub - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
You are correct, the spindle is pressed into the inner race on the bearing. The bearing's outer race is pressed into the hub, or knuckle. Either press fitting can fail. In most cases it is the outer race sliding between the circlips in the hub. I think there may be a spacer available to snug it up. In my case it was the inner race that slipped and wore down the spindle so that a tight press fit wasn't possible. It knocked pretty good on turns.
Won't know which until you pull the knuckle off the car and look at it.
