Default Re: Front wheel bearing

Do you mind me asking where you got your hub/s from? I've been looking online and found prices were wide and varied. Car Parts Warehouse, for example sells 2 wheel hub assembly's for the 2003 fx4 abs for 88.20??
They also sell what they claim to be OEM for 176.60? Anyone heard of this outfit?

I know you get what you pay for, but the local mechanic was quoting me 8 bills to do this job... Yikes. Enough to send any closet mechanic online!!

Question, do you also have to replace the whole hub assembly on a 94 4x4?

Just did my first front hub assembly replacement! Used Timkin assembly, and It was pretty easy. I'm not joe mechanic, so had to borrow some tools, but I already had an impact wrench which helped on the axle nut.

First bearing took me 2+ hours, as I couldn't get the old bearing off the spindle. I was afraid to start wacking it(the bearing), so finally went and borrowed a puller, which helped immensely. Second replacement took only 45 minutes. Anyone can do this project with minimal experience and a friend with tools Truck now riding like new. So happy I decided to save the 800.00 on having the mechanic do it. Net savings over 500.00!!!

Is this the same for 2WD's? It is an entire hub assembly I need and not the just bearing correct?

Hate to dig up an old thread, but I gotta replace my front wheel bearings. Im running 15x8s with 33s. Anyone got any suggestions on beefier bearings, or something a little better than something else?
