Default Bearings 2wd Front Question.

2nd Gen 2wd SLT Laramie 1500 Wheel bearings.

Has anyone a part number and price?

Or better still the bearing size, type and shell number So I can try matching
from local bearing supplier?

I'm in England and parts are hard to source, or very expensive and buying from USA/Canada is becoming a nightmare. Customs duty is just daylight robbery.

Has anyone done a 2wd bearing replacement job, and how tricky is it?

Cheers David.

Default In the same boat...

Im in the same boat as you are man. My right front was chattering over 40mph, now the whole wheel is vibrating like its gunna come off...


My buddy is going to throw it in tomorrow.

All i can tell ya is this:
If you have 2 Wheel ABS, the price each is $160.00....
If you have 4 Wheel ABS, the price each is $320.00....

I have 2 Wheel ABS, so its the cheaper route for me this time... But I'm only doing the passenger side...

Are you supposed to change them both or just one at a time???? is my question for our DODGE buddys!!!

I got my bearings sent in the post. Now fitted shells and seals. Both wheels
2 hour job. What a difference they make on noise. There's none.

If any of you do the front 2w/d bearings which are only tapered bearings.
Do the shells and remove any old grease. The old grease will gave bits of old bearing and cage in it and wont do your fresh new bearings any good.
And will fail so much quicker than doing the job right.

I'm giving the truck a couple of days ride before nipping the axle nut up a quarter turn again.
The bedding in should be good by then.

When I get back in the garage I'll post the seal and bearing numbers for future ref.
