My right rear wheel bearing has gone bad and made lots of horrid noises before I got it into the garage, I'm trying to break the 36mm nut so I can get at everything, but so far, all I have broken is my 1/2" breaker bar, I guess 6' of extension pipe was a bit too much - busted the 1/2" square piece, banged my wife's shin and bent a lug bolt that I'll have to replace. Called a friend and he came over with his 3/4" drive set and broke the nut loose while I stood on the brakes with 4 X 4 and lockers. Any advanced advice for what I'm going to find, I'm done with it for the day and going to go play with the grand kids.
I think the front wheel bearings need replaced. Lately i've noticed some noise from the front end while driving.. jacked it up and both sides have considerable play. The passenger side more so. Kawasaki 92045-1170 replaces the bearing. its 2 per hub. which is 4. it's 25 bucks PER BEARING. which is $100 and some change for both sides. Kawasaki lists that the bearing used is a 60/22 2RS ball bearing. i can find them anywhere from $5 to $10, BUT i question the quality, no country of origin is disclosed.
Pivotworks.com has a front set but its $42 for each side. 42+42= 84, so thats better than 100..... any one ever bought anything from pivot works?
I checked the local auto parts stores for the bearing but nada.
I purchased my 2018 Cub Cadet 750 Challenger new in July 2019 and it will not go into 4 wheel drive. Has this ever happened to anyone or do you have any idea as to what could be wrong?
I have one of the Mule Pros that is stuck in Stop Sale Purgatory. It is a 2019 Mule Pro FXT EPS. When it gets released I am definitely swapping the tires out for some ITP Blackwater Evolutions. I am considering wheels. Other than a 12 inch diameter (which I will stay with) I can't find any other specs. about the factory wheels.
When I look at after market wheels they list what appears to be the offset (ex. 3.5x3.5) but I have no idea what the factory wheels are. This is a very important consideration for me. Due to the width of my trailer I just cant get comfortable with a wheel that will make my tires poke out any farther than they already are.
I am hoping someone here can tell me the wheel specs. I need to be shopping for in order to remain factory and avoid any loading/unloading problems. Thanks.

I recently had a major repair done. Clutch replaced. Now it pops when in 4 wheel drive. Not all the time. I have had this issue on and off for years. I usually back up after coming out of 4 wheel drive and that fixes it. This is a little different. 2011 Kawasaki Mule
