    Honestly, sounds like a cheap piece of junk. Search hub assembly here on the forum, couple members on here make them for our tacos. Help fellow members on here. Just my own opinion.

    Thank you, I appreciate it. I am a little torn on the issue (not which hub to buy) but whether it is even my issue. I have a little bit of top/bottom play in my wheel which tells my ball joints but the issue is that at low speeds I get a low humming noise that makes my truck sound like it is revving high. I put brand new tires on today thinking it was cupped tires (I was due for new one anyways) but the sound is still present. I am thinking wheel bearing but I have been wrong in the past about other things and this sound is new to me.

    I think I just confirmed my thinking, if I turn right the sound goes away. I have just never had a wheel bearing go that isn't really loose but just hums.

    I would've changed both sides at the same time. You wouldn't have this issue if you did.

    And yeah, stay away from dem Chinese parts.

    Fair enough, I have sent a PM to the guys on this forum to see if they will ship to Canada. If not I will just go the press and replace route again.
