hub bearing.

I have a 2005 Ex.4x4. I'm pretty sure my front hub bearings are shot. I've looked, and it seems like I have to replace the entire hub assembly. Is this correct? Autozone sells front hub bearings,part number D15101. Are these not what I'm looking for? Or am I buying hubs? Thanks!

Yes, it is a bearing assembly. You really need to scourn the interweb for the best price on Timkin bearings, I tried TWO from Circle K auto parts and they both had excessive bearing ID. In fact, I trashed one in less than 6 months. I ended up getting one at NAPA because I needed my truck NOW. If I would have been able to wait, I found similar priced, but Timkin.

Rock Auto has several to chose from, remember two very improtant things:
1. You get what you paid for.
2. 14x1.5 is fine thread, 14x2.0 is coarse thread. Unlike SAE that counts threads per inch, metric measures space between threads. Anyway, fine or coarse WILL matter.

You need the whole hub assembly. The bearings are pressed/torqued in. Don't buy the cheap autozone or off brand bearings. Stay with Timken or SKF. Typically, not always, off brand stuff you will be replacing again within a couple years depending on amount of miles you drive. RockAuto or PartsGeek will have much better prices than local parts stores. Possibly half the price for same Timken units.

Please, do not buy cheap wheel hubs. I did cause money was tight, a year later after being towed home, I was replacing both of them again.

Cheap wheel hubs+ tow bill+ quality hubs= more than doing it right the first time...

Search around online, you can find good prices for good timkens.

Here are some part numbers for you. Not all of them are required, but you may be interested in changing some other things while you have it torn down. I found Amazon had the best prices when I did this last summer.

Timken Unit Bearings (14.x1.5mm) : SP580205 SP580205 Seal: BRS84 (Not sure which one this is, haven 't researched it yet)
Front Axle Oil Seal: 3C3Z3254CA
Seal Asy-Trans Diff: 2C3Z3254AA
Front Axle U-Joint: PUJ1 (This was the number he listed, he said he sourced from Napa, didn't come up with anything on a search.)
Front Differential Oil: Amsoil Severe Gear 75w90
