Just replaced my front right bearing hub assembly. After I put everything back together the steering wheel chatters when you straighten it out after a turn. Any ideas?

Sounds like you got air in the steering. Go drive straight for like 15 miles.

Or you didn't put something together right. Check that before driving too far.

That's what it felt like to me at first but there should be no reason it got air in the system. As for the hub I'll give it another look but it's only 3 bolts and the axle nut. Can't see how I could mess that up

Whatever the problem was it sorted itself out. Ended up having to replace the hub again anyway. Couldn't figure out why the abs light was on either. Turns out I must have cracked the abs sensor taking it out and when I put it in the new hub it broke and sheared every tooth off the tone ring. I guess that will do it. Lol
