Default Wheel bearing

Had to change out my left front wheel bearing at 82 149 miles, is that average. It had no side to side play but it was dry making noise. the right side seems to be ok.

On my '06 I had both done with the brakes at 90k. I did brakes and shocks and put on the second set of Cooper Discoverer HT Plus all at the same time.

Replaced mine on my 03 at 103,xxx when I changed front spindles to upgrade to SRT brakes/suspension. They weren't loose or making any noise, but I will say the truck seemed to get moving easier with new bearings (could just be in my head).

I have to have my drivers side done at 50K. Buddy of mine here in town with an 06 has had both of his replaced at 42K. My mechanic at my dealer said that the last 4 he did wasn't a hair over 20K.

I think the 3G bearings are junk!

~100k is roughly normal for wheel bearings. I'd recommend doing both sides at same time though.
