Front wheel bearing are they hard to replace?

Hi after further inspection of the rattling of the brake dust cover i noticed the wheel bearings is on there way out cause it spins ruff instead of smoothly so my ? is are they hard to replace? i know i have did many cars in the past but never did a truck that had lock out hubs.

Also is there any free guides on how to do it?

This is for the 2000 tacoma but it will be the same as yours.

The section you want is towards the bottom.

I did mine...well, as far as i could, what I mean is, i pulled both front spindles off and took them to NAPA. The bearings are pressed in and very hard to get out even with a press. I got all the parts from Toyota and NAPA did all the press work. They turned it around in about 3 hours.

Well sure enough that's that the rattling sound was i use a angle grinder and cut that dam dust cover off and now no more rattling. I think i might just try to buy a whole another wheel assembly instead of trying to get new bearings

honestly....i think that the people who owned it before me, seeing as how bad of shape it was in, never balanced their tires, and that constant vibration and outta round movement may have warped it a little. i installed my new cv's, and alotta the shake went away, but i still have some around 60-70mph, and i have had my tires balanced a few times to rule that out. hell, who knows, it may be that the tires arent balanced all that great, so we'll see i reckon.

Mine are lock outs and do the 4x4 4cly and 6cly 4x4s use the same lockout hubs?

im thinking i might take my spindle off and pay a shop to replace the bearings for me but if it cost more then 167 to do it i will just buy a new one.


i know in the past on my 95 eagle talon the bearings went out and the bearings coasted $39 for the kit and i got a whole other spindle at the salvage yard for $45 so i went that rout

99 4X4 I4 and V6 used the same wheel hub assem. the bearing are one sealed unit/side. pressed in and need pressed out. take a look at this, it may help you understand a little better.

http://www.ncttora.com/fsm/2000/Repa...20Hub/comp.pdf

that price listed above is just for the Spin.. not hub, bearings or seals. the bearings for our trucks are $, a little more expensive then the talon ones you did...
