Wheel Hub question replacement
Three questions.
1.I know my hub is bad. So going to replace it, but two questions what brand do you recommend. I see the Timkin ones have a 3 yr warranty?
2.And when i look up parts how do i know if i have 4 wheel ABS. I have front ABS because i see the harness. I dont see a harness in the rear or is it controlled by the valve on the fender?
3. Can you buy new spline bolts for the hub or go to a junk yard. one of the heads is messed up but will come out.

1. Timkin is a very well known bearing company. They make a wide range of bearings. You'll find Timkin bearings on the railroad.

2. the rear ABS sensor is on the pumkin

3. you can find the bolts in the junkyard. just make sure you take a 12-point 9/16" socket/box end wrench, not a 6-point socket...

I have the same 2001 Ram 1500 4WD 318 5 speed. I ordered a timken sp550102 which is for the 4 wheel abs and I believe I have the 2 wheel abs system and should have ordered the HA599863. I have to verify for sure what system I have(should have made sure before ordering) but when I had the left front replaced I was sure they said I had 4 wheel abs. My question is will the 4 wheel abs hub and bearing I bought work or is it completely different?? I ordered my unit from autopartswarehouse and they have a 20% restocking fee!!!! Thanks for any info.

docwilcar 11-29-2012 11:28 AM I checked my Ram and I do have 2 wheel abs as I can see the sensor on the rear pumpkin and I have no wires running to the front brakes. I have a feeling the Timken I have will not fit. If you can use this one sent me an email at and maybe we can work out a deal.

Should be able to use the ones you got, just secure the wires.

I wish I knew for certain if that were true, anyone else know if it might work? It appears that the 2000 and 2001 hub and bearings do not fit any other years or makes.

Take out your old hub, compare it. If it looks identical, it might just work. No idea if those hubs are for specific year.
