Default Wheel Bearing Assembly

So, I've got new assemblies for the front. I was wondering if they are self contained or do they require grease like the old school wheel bearings?
Thanks
Rich

i should be a seal bearing with a hub so no grease is required but u would like to clean the area ur around to make sure there is no dirt or grime on it so it can sit flush on the car

The front hubs are a sealed unit so no grease.
Your going to need a unviersal to get at the top bolt, I would attact that bolt first and leave the other two in for support.

I figured that it was a sealed unit, but just wanted to double check before going to all that trouble. Thanks.

Passenger side done. Warped rotors turned. Drivers side hub assembly doesn't want to come off the spindle, so it'* soaking in PB overnight.

Tomorrow'* agenda: finish front wheel bearing install. New pads. Grease intermediate shaft. Install homemade CAI. Change plugs(1 range colder). 3.4" pulley install. Adjust moonroof. Getting 180* stat next week from a GP bud.

I held off modding for almost 2 years, but now I'm getting bored with the car. It would be cheaper to up the hp than to buy a CTS-V(my next car). And, my wife drives an '04 GP GTP CompG and I just can't have her driving a faster car than me.

Woo hoo.

Well, it took all weekend but I've accomplished all my objectives. Still need to add the 180 stat and didn't scan yet. But, the car is no longer slow. It'* not fast, but it will keep me amused for a while longer now. I love the */c whine, very pronounced under wot. Looking for a deal on 1.9 rockers next.
