Exactly my thoughts - There's only one component with infinite life on commercial aircraft (the landing gear) which is part of why I enjoy screwing around with cars - there's almost nothing that needs to be timed-out. If it works it works.

Hubs and ball joints definitely fall outside that territory. What items aside from those need to be replaced regularly and at how many hours? Should we have a sticky for things to be serviced every season?

I'm not sure if this is recent or already common knowledge, I didn't see it mentioned in this thread but for the people who buy OEM hubs, it seems that mazdacomp sells them preinstalled with the correct ARP studs(lists the ARP part number). The difference in price is a few bucks more than buying the studs seperately.

Well, I've been scared into it - new rear hubs and bearings go in next week, just before my road trip to MRLS.

Welp, these are backordered. Hoping to get new stuff in before my track day but it may not happen.

I managed to find a set from a guy in Vancouver that is selling his STS autocross Miata and buying an FRS (which, apparently, has a classing advantage). They look really nice:







Being installed today. Also have a set of the Mazdaspeed blueprinted front hubs/bearings, which I'll keep as spares for when my current ones wear out.

Order OE hubs and press your own studs in? That's what I'll be doing this week.

Default Latest Carnage

Latest carnage. The center spins freely within the hub. Somehow, the wheel did not depart the car. Coasted in.

Ouch! Makes me feel better about having spent the money to change mine out.

Hopefully we can come up with a cheaper solution than buying OE replacements from Mazda. I can buy a stack of Dorman hubs and get them reamed at the machine shop for less than 1 OE part.
Here you go

Knurling helps prevent rotation, but it also lessons the precision needed vs a true press fit tremendously. Not sure reaming is even required if one is truly shooting for 0.005 - 0.008 interference range.
