    My driver side wheel bearing needs to be replaced on my 06 Tacoma Prerunner. What should I expect to pay?

    ^Sounds about right...I had to have 3 replaced in my old car, each was about $220 including parts/labor.

    There is no provision to grease them.

    How many miles does your truck have on it? You should get quite a few miles out of your wheel bearings, unless you're running super wide tires, or wheel spacers.

    I've got 160k+ miles on my '01 DC front bearings.

    I have an 05' at 66k and need a front bearing. The dealer quoted me almost $800 to have it replaced. Good thing it's still under warranty! They said it would need to be realigned before I told them I wouldn't be paying for it. It doesn't show on the invoice that they aligned it. I guess Toyota didn't want to pay for it or they were just blowing smoke you know where.

    That sounds about right. I paid $900 to have the right wheel bearing replaced and the tranny fluid changed.

    If the races are not scored or totally ruined, you can replace the front wheel bearings yourself. The process is very easy, and plenty of videos on the internet on how to do it.
