Wheel Bearing

Hey Guys, have any of you replaced a wheel bearing on your trucks?

I have a 2008 TRD w/ 70000+miles and had to change one last week.

Is it common for our trucks or am i just unlucky?

that sounds pretty normal...I think the whole sealed wheel bearing design has become a problem accross the board.

Jack up the truck and wiggle the wheel, 12 and 6, and 3 and 9. ANY play needs to be investigated. If the the play is the same 12 and 6, and 3 and 9 it is likely a wheel bearing. Spin the wheel and listen for noise or harshness.

it depends. One axle has bearings you can pull or push into the bearing plate the other I seem to remember doesnt.
THey're like a bill or 2 a wheel unfortunately if you get the full on bearing assembly from toyota. Like 20 if you can press or pull out the old bearing.
