Should I replace them both on principle, or just the wobbly one? Since I have a shop press could I just push it out and in myself or does it still have to be done at a shop? I'm sure my indy would do it, although I'm kind of embarrassed to try to explain the mayhem that is my project.
I was just looking at the wheel bearing DIY and remembered the parking brake. I didn't even think to check and see if that was stuck.
