Wheel bearing maintenance and service should not be neglected. If you are hearing strange rumbling noises up front while driving you should check your wheel bearings. Replacing them is not a diffiuclt D.I.Y. job if you have the right knowledge and tools.
If you need everything for your front hub bearing replacement then this is the best deal. This kit is for ONE SIDE ONLY. Comes with inner and outer wheel bearings, seal, cap, ground clip and pre-load adjusting bolt. Fits models listed above only ( with ABS).
WARNING: We are finding that people are replacing axles from other models that have different size boots. This kit will ONLY replace boots on ORIGINAL AXLES!! BOOTS PROVIDED IN THIS KIT FOR INNER AND OUTER ARE THE SAME SIZE. AXLE END I.D. is approx 7/8". CAN END OF BOOT I.D.
I have been discovering this is one of those maintenance areas that suffers from severe neglect. Failure of the rubber support or center drive shaft bearing can cause all types of improperly diagnosed vibration problems - some commonly change with vehicle speed.
