Default Wheel Bearing Replacement

05, 1500 5.7 Laramie with 31000 miles. I notice a recent low frequency noise from the drive side front wheel, I actually feel it in the padels also. Recently had in the garage for inspection. Had them analyze front noise, results is bad wheel bearings, mainly left side. Not covered under warranty. 1k to replace both sides. Is it common for these to go bad with very low miles & How hard is to replace front wheel hubs?

It's not common, but there's several reasons they could fail, from shocking the bearing to a seal going and it running dry. As for the hubs I wish I could help you, there's a reason that I keep several mechanic friends who will work for beer. My old Dakota toasted a bearing and it was about a $500 fix for the driverside bearing and hub and it was in for a few hours.

to replace a hub bearing could be very difficult if you do not have access to air tools....If you do have access to air tools, its not too bad....

I know this is an old post but for the future refrence of others. I did the bearing on an 04 passenger side and it only took me about 20 min from start to finish. just lift it up take the brakes off and there are 3bolts on the back side to remove it. the bearings are a sealed unit that runs around 100bucks or so and there is 1 plug in for the abs stuff. it was a very easy task to acomplish. and 1K holy **** I am in the wrong business.

Exactly, not a hard job. Rotors and bolts could be on there pretty good but thats about it. There are youtube videos of how to do it, I mean they dont tell you how to use a wrench and may not be your make and model but it will give the jist. Buy the part watch some videos and buy a haynes or chilton manual and your good to go.

$1,000 to replace the wheel bearings? Correct me if I am wrong but are these not sealed units, so you can not repack the bearings? Hell, I can see the part running up to $250 or more if you have ABS but less than 30 minutes to replace it. Damn!
