I knew I'd seen it before!

Thanks for the link!


All new rotors come with new wheel bearings installed already?

Blah ok thanks for the answer!





Side question:


Upper ball joints I have to buy the entire arm, correct? Any idea what they usually run?


Lower ball joints I can press out. Any recommendations on a brand?

Can I get upper arms that will allow me to use replaceable/serviceable balls?

Upper ball joints did not press out on my '99. Had to get a new upper control arm.

On 2 wd the front hub bearings are a separate replace item. But, you have to knock out the races and drive new ones in that come with the new bearings. Now the catch, if the new races do not go in very tight you will have to replace the hubs also. My Ranger had a bad wheel brg noise and the races were spinning in the hub. Important, the bearings need to be cleaned and repacked every 30K.
