its the shield.. the bearings are new. its fine if i'm turning or on the freeway, but at slower speeds it'll just grind (yes, the shield..). i jacked the tire up, spun it, put my finger on the shield, and could feel the grinding/sound from touching it, so i'm 100% sure its that.
i'm running full time slugs. there is a spring in there, however i'm not sure where its supported to go. i'm guessing its between the slug (flange whatever) and the spindle, to keep the slug from rubbing on the spindle. however because the spring pushes it out, its also pushing out the axle shaft, which is causing the shield to rub.
however say i take the spring out, will the slug not rub on the tip of the spindle now because its free to "walk" back and fourth?
