So are you talking about the axle is loose? Up and down, in and out movements? Or the wheels lug nuts except the locking one are loose?

Sounds like a wheel bearing. How loose is "loose"?----- really wobbles when driving, or jack it up and just a little movement? Also I found that the 1992 Cougar had 4-wheel disc option, so are we talking disk or drum brakes? Pleas describe the plate you are talking about...diameter, and do the studs stick in from the back?

FordNut that is a pic of a front hub. 92 cougar was a rear wheel drive. But I still don't know what they are about. On those cars the bearing ran right on the axle, so if they have an up down movement the bearing as well as the axle is shot, but if it just in and out movement most of that is normal. but then again if they have ran it with a loose rim it could have damaged the the studs as well as the wheel, so I don't know what this fastening nut nut is

I think it would be in the axel itself,meaning loose at pinion,in rear end,if it was just bearing,they would not just see it they would have heard it first,just my oppion fella,s ,not trying to overule ethier of you.

Hey guys, TST no need to explain. Your input is always welcome. And t'shoes, I stand corrected. I thought it was rear. Thanks fellas Both of you know more than I do, we all have our specialties but mine is narrow, and you guys is broad spectrum. I even like to read very 'dry' tech articles, like the one written by the engineers and designers of the 1ZZ FE, the 1.8 I have in my Corolla, learned about '"tapered squish". for example and how VVi works. I can set a distributor in a Ford 390 by ear. But there are lots of questions I have no clue that you guys answer. Good work, both of you
