So far I have only talked about the fronts. Anyone know about the rears? The parts list shows it being similar only that the CV shaft holds the hub on.

Anyone wanna speak up that has real experience doing this?

The rear is the same type deal. Still need a press. I havent done the rears are on my car yet, but will be doing all four soon. Remove the snap ring and then use the press...

Did you guys hear about the the idiot who tried to use a shotgun to remove his lugnuts? Needless to say, there was a trip to the emergency room.

I thought you where joking. Maybe the security lugnot broke. I had this happen to me and I was like OMFG what am I going to do now??? I was like well I guess I could weld an extention onto the broke lugnut. Eventully I figured out to hammer a socket about the same size onto the end of it.. worked pretty good on the other three as well.. BP

The socket crumbled about the same time so I was screwed to get the other three... Thank god that it did not happen on the side of the road and it happened at home.

Have you installed those yet? The funny thing is, that store has complete wheel hub assembly for 38 bucks (front) and just the bearing for $80.

Post number 33 item number 13? Is that what you are calling the HUB assembly? If that is the case then for 80 or even 180 you cant go wrong...

Ok, I ordered this "hub assembly" and received it today. Its not a hub assembly, its a bearing assembly, otherwords, its just the bearings.

I wish that we had a bolt in assembly like FORD and Chevy uses but, we don't we drive Toyota's thank god.

I will post a pic just for the sake of posting a pic. later not on this PC This was when I did my ball-joints. so it is somewhat relevant.

I have a tundra as well and it is the same design.

I guess you can quote yourself..

By the way, the box that that the bearing came in says "Timken", but on the bearing itself it says Koyo Japan. WTF?

I have replaced 2 wheel bearings in my LS.
Strangely enough they can be found cheaper on the Internet than even an Autozone will sell them for.

To worry about the brand bearing you use is ludicrous. First off Och is not the first to notice that dirty little secret. With modern mfg techniques there is not a dimes worth of difference between any of them.
