    He might not be B.S.ing you. Couldn't say for sure without looking at it. It would be hard to call this guy a liar without being there.
    "leaving tire marks" --Holy shit!! [​IMG] That is way off. Stupid question but did you reconnect both tie rod ends?
    If you did and you didn't have this problem before the work you did, he's probably right.

    What exactly is he saying is bad? The knuckle, hub bearing or what?

    Who did the work for you? (the knuckle part)

    Well, I don't know for sure what is going on with your car without seeing it but I will say that a wheel bearing on the right side won't screw up your tire on the left side. If the "whole arm piece", as you call it, is bad then you should be able to see the difference. It will have to be bent all to shit to cause that problem.
