    I posted this in the 2nd gen forum but I think that folks here would probably be really helpful...

    I'm looking to replace the wheel bearings on my right front wheel of my 2005 tacoma with front disc brakes. I was told by a tech that my bearings are shot and the dealer wants a crazy amount (like $800 LOL, that is good mod $$$!!!) to fix it so I thought I would try it myself and save some money. I have lots of tools but no air powered stuff. I've done work on my Ford Mustangs (replaced brakes, exhaust, suspension, a clutch, just basic stuff), but never worked on a Toyota.

    Is this an easy job? How expensive are the wheel bearings themselves? I watched a video on Youtube for some other toyota and it looked like you needed special tools like a grinder which has me worried lol. BTW I do have the shop diagram of parts.

    Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Yeah I saw that "SST", any idea what that is, what is stands for, where to buy, or how much it cost? LOL, got to love these detailed service manuals :)
