Front Wheel Bearing Change ?

Hey guy's, I have a bad driver side front wheel bearing on my 08 Tacoma. I'm wanting to know if I can use a hub & bearing assembly for a 03 thru 09 4 Runner, is it the same ? I found them on Ebay for $239.00 free ship. The reason I'm thinking of doing it this way is for simplicity. Then I'll have one to rebuild for a spare when the old one is removed.

Thanks for any input.

I found out from another source it won't work. The hub it's self is different, so I was told. The bearing module is the same as what the Tacoma's use.

I changed my driver front wheel bearing yesterday. Overall it wasn't to bad of a job, about 3 hours total. The bearing module I used was a Moog, the bearing in it was a SKF, made in Japan. The seals were National brand. I also went ahead & bought a new Toyota hub then had it pressed into the Moog bearing module, that gave me a complete hub, bearing unit. No running to a shop for press work half way through the job.
Now I have a spare hub.

I've read a lot of guy's don't change the inner seal when doing this & can see why. The steering spindle has to be removed so the inner seal can be changed since it goes in from the back. My seal was trashed so I had no choice. After reassembling & a test drive, wow what a difference !

My Tacoma is an "08 4X4 the parts used are listed below.
Toyota OEM Hub
43502-04120

National Seals
710477 Outer.
710573 Inner.

Moog Wheel Bearing Module
515040

Thanks Tacoma World for all the information easily found here that made doing this job almost a pleasure because I knew what I was getting into.

I forgot about the hub bolts & the "O" ring that goes on the bearing module.

All of the parts.
Moog Bearing Module
515040 $99.99

National Seals
710477 $11.66
710573 $13.39

Toyota OEM Hub
43502-04120 $168.12

Totota OEM "O" Ring
90301-A0005 $3.25

I got the bearing module at Advance Auto Parts with a couple other things & had a $50.00 off coupon.
The Hub came from toyotapartszone.com
The seals came from a local auto parts store.
The "O" Ring & hub bolts came from a local Toyota Dealer.

I've got 2 spare 4x4 hubs with bearings on them already if anyone is interested. As the OP stated great spares to have! When you need one, just swap it in and get a new bearing installed on the old one!
