Well my rig is out of commision. I was diving home from my Tech school, (about a 30 mile drive straight home) hit a bump with my front passenger side wheel, and it broke loose, luckly it didnt fall of but from their on it was so bad I had to go 15mph all the way home. So I riped off the wheel, and it looks like it just goin to be a wheel beaing. Anybody got any tips for me?:popcorn:

Tips? I dont know what tips to give, its pretty straight forward. Be clean, dont get crud and crap in the new bearing, make sure you pack the grease well, and dont drink so much that you awake Monday to discover that you never actually finished it!

I hate when something goes out on you and your forced to fix it on the terms of the parts, not when you have time to deal with it. Sorry dude!

It could be alot worse. Try taking off a hub assembly off from a 94 up. I would much rather change our stile of bearings. Much cheaper also. The last hub assembly I did had to come off with a torch.

Are we missing some info? If its a wheel bearing and thats all just go to any auto parts store and get one like begle says.

Hell, NAPA had all the parts for my front end in stock. A-Frames included. (Complete rebuild year and a half ago before I painted the truck)

I have tried NAPA and Dodge dealer, the part is discontinued, the junk yards my best bet, but so far Iv tried 4-5 and still notin. Does anyone think I can swap in a new front axle?

A whole new axle.... that would be expensive and i think unecessary, but surely you can find a rotor
