    :confused: At one point I thought I had gotten all the details about the 05 Tacoma and its frt bearings? Well, Simple! NOT! U don't even use a socket 35mm nor 63mm totally off! Tanx for the note though? Just letting you know you do need special tools for the baby!;) This is for those that are coming up 60K miles!

    ! Well after removing the hub off the spindle you need to press out the bearing! After figuring out that it does need a special press to remove the hub that is were Franksmith Toyota came in they have a new digital press machine that works perfect for that type of hub bearing? Believe me I did my studing around this particular hub style! It takes a particular psi which is input as if it were a cpu to pull out that hub from the bearing and on top of this you need that special tool to remove in the back, round nut off the hub threads before you start doing any work removing the hub! Also such spending rough estimate to spend on this job about/around $700 bucks if you don't do it yourself

    At or around that range of $'s! But let me tell you there are other ways of getting out that bearing my thing was the delicate-C of the system since it was my first time! Fairly simple when you have the right tool! Now who says you can't use Mexican inginuity!

    Reading through this thread has convinced me that it was written by some teenage girl text-messaging posts from her phone.
