<VV> bad front wheel bearing

Because there are two bearings in the knuckle end, just like the rear 
axle of an early Corvair. So either the inner or outer bearing on either 
side can be making noise.

Usually you can just get the front  end off the ground, run the car in 
gear and the failed bearing is obvious.


Doing any more parts bin clean ups?
