I've been through a couple hubs front and rear. I noticed having more brake pad knock back when scrubbing slicks more than hearing any noise. The way I check them is to remove the brake pads and bolt the wheel back on and feel for tightness.

I did loose a front bearing last time on track, same side that caught fire. I bounced through a hard left after loosing traction. Within two laps I heard the bearing howling. Pete (fnkyckn) brought me a bearing/hub assy and got me back on the road.
Can't do any better than having a chkn around!!!

Just ordered wheel bearing.
Hope it stops that front end falling off sound.
Please post your impressions after you get these on the track. I am curious how they compare to the EBC Blue as I just installed them over the winter. I am still running stock SRT8 Brembos but have added the titanium backing plates and cooling ducts/fans/backing plates.

Bump. feedback? I've been off the LX grid for awhile.
My hubs were still going strong after 3 + seasons on track. But thats a minor miracle. I replaced them as part of my rebuild. Great find on the new front hubs... I sure as hell paid more than that. Not even rockauto can touch that price. almost makes me want to stock up.

The motor was done in Feb. I actually drove it. Once. I'll tell the story when its over. Lots of extenuating circumstances. Mostly brought about by the meltdown of SVS.
when the suspension is finished, the roll bar is supposed to go in. I've been off the car so long I almost don't want to do it. It'd be enough just to get it back and drive the thing for a while.
