2000 Dodge 1500 2WD V8 5.9l 141k miles
Got a grinding noise which I pinpointed to bad front wheel bearing,
not sure which side yet. This model and year has the sealed units.
It has the rear wheel abs.
Here a link to the part:
I found a few other posts on this newsgroup about similar issues.
What I am unclear about is the actual replacement procedure. There is
one big nut holding the hub assembly in the steering knuckle. Is it
as simple loosing the nut? Should I then be able to pull the hub
assembly out? Will I need a hub puller? I don't have to take the
steering knuckle out, do I? Will I need a press to put the new hub
assembly into the steering knuckle?
I guess the decision I want to make is between doing it myself or
bringing it to the shop. I just replaced the ball joints and tie rod
ends myself, now this. I hope after this my front suspension is good
to go for another 100k miles.
Thanks in advance.
