    Hey guys. My passenger side front wheel bearing is toast.

    1) Do I have to get the whole hub assembly? Or can I just get a wheelbearing?

    2) What are the part numbers of the parts that I would need??

    3) Where is the cheapest place to get them?

    Around $26,000 worth of unleaded in the fuel tank.
    You can just get bearings. The auto parts stores will have them. I suggest you search for a how to on replacing them. There are many steps to follow.

    I'd get the whole thing because trying to press the bearing into a new hub is a PITA that you'll have to take to the shop to do anyway.

    If you're interested, I have a brand new bearing and hub I can sell you

    If you get just the bearing--I recommend TIMKIN==From what I researched here at (TCW) they are best.
    1st gen's are a pain in the ass--especially BALL JOINT removal.
    If you have the cash--let someone do it for you.

    What do you mean by TIMKIN? Is that a brand? If so is it better than the Toyota OEM one? And how much does it cost?

    does anyone have the part #'s for the Timkin or the OEM front passenger wheel bearing?? not the hub

    Find the wheel bearing thread, it has all the info you need.

    Timkin is a brand of bearing. Koyo is a great brand as well. As are SKF bearings.

    I can't find the wheel bearing thread you guys are talking about.

    Can someone give me the Timken wheel bearing part # as well as let me know what kind of grease and seals I'll need.

    One of the choices is the SKF bearings with the hub and the other choice is the SKF bearings with out the hub.
