    seal, and hub replaced on Saturday by a local dealership. Luckily at the time I purchased my 2003 DC back in July 2009, I negotiated a sweet deal on a 36 month 3rd party warranty. The repair cost totaled $641 ($300 in labor), however, I only paid a $50 deductible.

    I didn't think a repair of this nature would cost so much. Anyone else have to pay so much out of pocket? I realize some of you mechanically inclined guys repacked your own, however, for those less mechanically inclined, how much did you pay to replaced the bearings?

    I had the left rear redone on my 2004 about a year ago. I don't recall the exact price but it was in the same neighboorhood that you paid. I could not believe it cost that much for such a simple job.

    I had to replace my front left wheel bearing on my 05.. it was around there, and it was all out of pocket.. the mechanic was telling me that the front left wheel bearings and suspension tend to be prone to fail in these trucks.. I wonder if it has to do with the tacoma lean
