    It's a unit bearing assembly that has to be pressed in. There are threads on this site outlining the steps to do it yourself if you have a 20 ton shop press at home.

    Just got back home from spending all day at a Toyota dealer getting the driver's side front wheel bearings and hub replaced ($732.00). I had no idea what the problem was, or that it cost that much to do the job($225.00 parts and $437.00 labor). I will do the passenger's side my self, it looks fairly easy. Thanks everyone for the coments on this thread. My truck's symptom was a whining rotational noise. Last night it got so bad I thought I was going to have to pull the truck over. I had not noticed the noise before but after getting it done; there was a whin I was ignoring. All quite now!!! Thanks for everyones help!!!!!
