Default Hub Bearing?? need a lil help please

My car started making a growling type sound the other day that only got louder as i got faster and stopped when I stopped. I checked the tire and found nothing visibly wrong. In doing my research and having someone look at it I believe that it is the passenger side front Hub Bearing has went out. Its getting louder and with this car being my only means of getting around - is it bad to still be driving with it out???? But my main question is is how hard it is to replace it and does it matter what "brand" is bought from the parts store if they all have a 1 year warranty??? I am going to attempt to replace this with a friend on Friday so any advise or know how on how to to it and anything else would greatly be appreciated!!! hope to hear from you guys soon, have a great day

I forget what year and model your car is, please add that to your signature and mention it in this thread.

Overall the hubs on these cars are easy to replace. 87-99 is a bit easier than 2000+, but with a friend that has done one it should be easy.

As for the brand, ask the parts counter guy which one he'd use. They will usually have one that might make the year warranty period and another that is better quality.

im not 100% sure if they are the same part between the years but they SHOULD be replaced in around the same fashion... if they all have the same warranty i would ask which would be the recommended brand to go with

try looking here for how to replace it https://www.gmforum.com/t278891/
