    I recently joined the forum and have had a great time reading through the various posts. I'm not a mechanic by any stretch of the imagination, but this forum is helping me to take a step out of my comfort zone to try a couple of new things.

    I recently replaced the rear differential fluid and will be working my way up to the front diff as well as the transfer case.

    One thing that I noticed when changing out the rear diff fluid is that I apparently had a passenger side rear seal leak.

    I just replaced my tired and knew it was time to get an alignment. I took the car into a repuatable service center in the town I live in and asked them to quote me a price on the seal replacement. I also mentioned that I was starting to hear a roaring noise at low speeds when turning left.

    The tech called me back about two hours later with the bad news. He said I needed a new right front bearing as well as a replacement for the rear seal and bearing. They couldn't align the truck due to too much play. The total price quote:

    Front bearing assembly $800
    Rear seal and bearing replacement $700 (with alighment)

    This is way out of my skill level so I wanted to know if you guys think this price quote it way overboard.

    Thanks for your help.

    front bearing is cake to change, done even need a press. Just four bolts holdign on the hub, replace the entire hub.


    Rear bearing seal, replace the seal when you pull the axle, some users need a press, some slam it on concrete. But the hardest part i'd say is you need to pull your rear break lines, so you'll have to bleed them. Labor, an afternoon, parts, dunno, call up toyota, front bearing, rear bearing, and seal. also rear diff fluid, and brake fluid of your choice.
