Default Wheel Bearing!

OK so last week started to faintly hear a noise... it later got worse and is now a little annoying whirling sound.

Pretty sure its a wheel bearing (unbelievable) one thing after another

So stock OEM or aftermarket replacements or any upgrade parts?

Bearing is really easy to fix too. unless the abs sensor housing gets stuck. but a good punch and hammer will take care of that. forget the torque bolt size but might as well by a set that goes up to T50

If you run into a problem pulling the hub with everything off, Rice Central.. er.. AutoZone has a puller you can get on a free lend. Saves a lot of pounding and swearing. Sometimes when they fail, they generate a great deal of heat and really get stuck with the spindle. You pull it out of the housing and the spindle comes with it. The puller gets it out nicely, and leaves the spindle where it should be.
