Possible source for front wheel bearings cheap!

Hello all

Looks like I need a set of front wheel bearings, Called down to the Ford dealer and was shocked to find out the nhubs are $418 a side!

A little more chatter and I was directed to part number 5c3z-2b513-aa $44.00 This is the actual bearing and circlip

Last time I had the hubs off I recall it appeared to just be pressed in.

Has anyone pressed the a new bearing in vs a whole new hub assembly?


Please reply asap as Im up to trying this if someone with more knowledge knows if this can be done

Thanks fellas

I was having a grinding noise come from the front when i turn to the left.Ended up pulling wheel hub out and bearing was bad.The front hubs are around 400.00 but if u look close there are two bearings or what i was told.My problem was the small bearing the shaft rides in.You can replace it by itself and cost me 25.00.I took the number off the bearing and went to my local bearing shop and got it there.It wasnt all that bad to do but took sometime to get the retaining clip off axel to get hub off.I use a KBC bearing part#6009DDC3G81.Wasnt hard to remove just remove retaining clip and tap old one out.I put my new one in freezer for about 20min and taped back in with ease.

I am sorry to revive this thread but I am on the same boat right now. Does anybody else have the same luck on doing this by just replacing the bearings? Thanks.

I have an 03 with fine threaded studs, when I did mine I got 99-02 wheel hubs and changed to course threaded lug nuts on the front. The 99-02 hubs are around 100.00 cheaper than the 03 and later, I got a whole set of course threaded lug nuts on ebay for around 50 bucks.
