    Read the sticky, did the search, but I want to clarify with people who have done this repair themselves before I undertake this. Most of the stuff I read mentions a bearing needing to be pressed in, but can't you make the job a lot easier by just buying an assembly like this:

    http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sku/Koyo/Wheel_Bearing/W0133-1741015.html?loc=Front

    And then I would need a new O ring and Front Axle Hub Oil Seal, correct? Is that all I need to do this replacement? I think this is the way to get around needing special tools, etc. Thanks in advance.

    Think I can answer my own question. After looking again at the FSM, that link I posted is the actual bearing only, and not any kind of assembly. But I think all I need to do is get the old one pressed out and this pressed in (probably $25 somewhere) and then I can reinstall it myself. Now I just need to source the correct gaskets and seals.

    How many miles does your 2009 have? What kind of symptoms/noise did you have to warrant the replacement? I have a 2006, 68000, and I just started getting a sound/ vibration in the front. It sounds like tire noise so I can't tell if it is the bearings or not. Thanks.

    Here is the order invoice for the seals needed for replacing both front wheel bearings, hope this helps. These are toyota part numbers.
