    OKAY!

    There is a sticky at the top of the page of this forum section.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...axle-replace-front-wheel-bearing-2nd-gen.html

    Then XXXX formerly known as Oswego and then known as Misc made a thread here.
    but... well... long story short he ended up as XXXX and all his Oswego threads turned to Misc and things are all messed up so I think he recreated this thread under XXXX with proper pictures.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...el-bearing-replacement-part-s-general-bs.html

    THEN there is this video, done by st3ve with a 3.
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/176080-diy-front-wheel-bearings.html

    HF has cheap presses that work nicely! Best of luck, enjoy your hunt.

    ALSO, pack your new wheel bearings with good grease until the white cheap shit comes out of them.

    No, it'll make more sense when you have one in your hands.

    You have an o-ring and two seals, one seal is pressed onto the bearing assembly and seats against the hub, the other seal goes into the spindle/knuckle. The bearing assembly itself can be pulled apart.

    lol ^

    One last thing.

    It's a "sealed" bearing in that it's a unit bearing assembly instead of the older style bearings on a spindle.
