Default Wheel Bearing

My Front Passenger side Wheel Bearing is howling... Do I have to buy the whole assembly or can I grease the ones I have?

I'm pretty sure you have to buy a new hub assembly. The hubs are non serviceable.

U can make it eaiser on your self and just order a spindle assembly from your local salvage yard....they leave the hub bearing in it. Less mess and less time and hassle....I think.

Most yards only want about 35-50 bux for a spindle assembly with a bearing in it. We sell'em here where I work left and right.

Sealed for life, non-servicable. And use a new bearing. Putting a used one on is like buying used tires or struts. That big of a job deserves a new part.

The '93 SSE that I work on had the passenger side bearing go first, then about a year and a half after that, the driver'* side went. Be prepared to use a fair amount of torque to break the spindle nut loose. If a new nut doesn't come with the bearing, you may want to purchase one. It'* generally recommended that a new one be used rather than reuse the old one.
