You would need a tool that can read the drive's SMART information. Try HD Tune or other suitable tool. Anything showing as outside of normal (non-green in HD Tune) might indicate a problem.

Ahh, you have a Series 2 drive. Unlikely to be affected but given recent issues with some SandForce controllers worth checking all the same.

comment GParted failing to shrink hfs+ partition; Mac OSX disk utility reporting no space left
Just to second the recomendation to defragment. I had exactly the same problem and only managed to resolve it by first defragmenting the HFS+ partition using Drive Genius 3. Once done, Disk Utility was then happy to resize the partition.
