    Hey guys/gals I'm needing to replace a bad wheel bearing on the front left I have a 2007 2wd Tacoma image.jpgimage.jpg and here's the wheel bearing assembly I bought, well the other part that has the studs for your lug nuts does that have to be press in with a pressing machine or can it be installed by hand?

    I changed mine without a press. Just used a small sledge and a block of wood, but I'm a professional hillbilly engineer.

    Thread revival:

    Okay, so i replaced my passenger front wheel bearing/hub with a complete assembly.. the bolt in kind with no pressing required.

    I swapped out the pieces, greased everything sparingly [light coat across everything] and torqued all hardware to manufactures spec.

    The problem: i drove it about 300 ft from the house, i live on a gravel road. And have some serious creaks and groans going on. So much so i was afraid i hadnt installed something right and took it back to the garage. *the dust cover isnt on the hub assembly as i am going to replace it, but thats it.

    I had engaged 4wd and left the drivers tire on the ground when i swapped the assembly. Sounds occur with and w.o 4wd on. I didnt do much checking of the splines when i installed, as i figured if it slid and bolted on i was lined up..

    Any ideas???

    Make sure you didn't slightly bend the brake dust shield, it maybe rubbing on the disc.

    I was sure to check that. Thanks tho..

    It sounds like a louder continuous cycling of some squeaky ass suspension.
