the wiggle test is the best indicator.
While you're driving around putting miles down, if you start to feel like your front end is really loosey goosey over bumps & potholes and whatnot then that would be a sign to do the wiggle test.

with those things... every time I stopped i did the ole wiggle test!

eventually you just pull the snout thru.

and i had some of those plastic caged bearings on my old 98 F150. (those are tiny too) scared the crap out of me. So I bought some steel ones. But they were from CHI-NUH

it is indeed the same ranger. and i wouldnt be surprised to find out having -15 degrees of camber was causing some kind of uneven wear to the bearings lol. i was just really trying not to drop more money on it tho especially with my LT kit being ready to pickup in 4 weeks. are you talking dana spindles or just the hub/bearing assemblies. i really havent looked much into it and i would have no idea where to start for which parts to buy for my LT kit
What kit did you order?
