    I have a front wheel bearing going out on my tacoma. I jacked it up and the wheel had 1/4" of play. Ive searched on here and googled it but cant find it or a picture. I'm not going to fool with pressing the bearings in and out so Im trying to find the whole hub assembly so I can just bolt it on. Does anyone have the part #? Thanks a bunch!

    Use really nice grease they will last longer because it will repel water

    Thanks for the help fellows! Yeah I learned this the hard way. Ordered one from oreilly. He told me 2 days but didnt come in. Called advance auto and they had 1 in stock. Went and got it and as I figured it wasnt the whole assembly like he said. Got it anyways. Called my uncle to see if he knew anyone that had a press. He did and the guy only lived about a quarter mile from me :D Charged me $15! Just got it installed and took it for a test ride and it works perfect.

    The hardest thing was getting the freaking hub off the axle. I dont know if it was due to the splines or if it was because the bearing had been hot. The axle splines were a light blue. I kept tapping it with a hammer and it finally came off.

    Did you replace the seals as well?

    Yes.
    Which seals are you talking about? Curious because I'm changing both cv shafts and both wheel bearings on sat... diff seals?... I thought you had to disassemble the front diff?

    There is an inner and outer seal for each wheel bearing assembly, as well as an O ring. The diff seals are totally different. Outer seals have to be installed before the hub is pressed into the bearing.

    I did not replace the seals on mine. The o-rings were in good condition. The seal on the inside of the spindle (where the CV shaft goes into the spindle) was a little worn on the passenger side, but I did not have the parts so I did not replace it.
