Default Where can I buy new wheel bearings?

Okay so I just got my truck in November so I'm still kinda new to it.

It's an 03 Ford Ranger Fx4 with ABS and the front driver side wheel bearing is wearing out. It squeaks a lil and grinds a lil when making right turns. All signs are pointing me to the bearing. (unless of course someone know something that I should know about it)

Where can I buy new bearings for the front and what should I look for? I'd rather do them myself if at all possible and not take it to the stealership.

Any and all help on this would be awesome.

Thanks!

Cool I just don't wanna get ripped off on it.

You think I would be a fairly doable job for 2 people in a garage?

hell i did it in my 98 in like 2 hours or maybe 2:30 and hell that was stopping to help my buddy out a couple of times. just make sure you get a new seal for the back of the rotor and when you put it in if it gets pinched you gotta get another new one.

Replacing them is fairly easy, I did mine on my FX4 last fall. 'Cause the bearing/hub is all one assembly, they're not cheap though, for Timken's they were $100+ per side.

if not sealed use premuim grease (synthetic if possible), also check CV joint and lug torque, loose lug nuts sound like bearing grind.
