      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

How much play

Recommended Posts

I just replaced the wheel bearing assembly on my wife's 2007 Chev Trailblazer and noticed a bit of side to side play on the passenger side.  Not a terrible amount, just noticeable.  What is normal/acceptable?

A little bit of slop is fine. the good thing is you know it is getting a little sloppy so keep an eye on it and when you feel it is too sloppy change it.

The other thing you can try is retorquing the axle nut to see if it will snug up the slack.

You would be surprised at how sloppy they come in. To the point where the rotor starts rubbing on the caliper bracket or the worst when I has the bearing actually seized and starting turning in the hub. The weight of the car caused it to wear up into the knuckle. When the customer finally brought it in it had worn a hole about half of its size. "just started making noise yesterday"

It is not uncommon for expeditions and explorers to come in with a complaint of, "it feels like I'm driving on ice". 90% of the time it is more than one wheel bearing about ready to fall off. I have had one that all four bearings where sloppy. the customer requested we not test drive it until we figured out what was going on.

Nothing that bad.  A grinding sound going around the corner for the one I replaced.
