Well I've never heard of just changing bearings. I've always had to change the whole thing. Good luck and if you do. Chime in and school us please.

Wink sorry

you cant change bearings i have tryed this all your gonna do is break houseing or break press the only way to remedy this problem is to order the dyna track free spin kit then you can replace bearings i got mine for $1200.00 and you get warn premiem hubs and 35 spline axles easy to install to have to look around web to find um cheaper than what dyna track sells them for just make sure you plug your air lines going to old hubs

You can replace the inner bearing where your axle shaft goes, but if its the big outer bearing, your SOL.

Well after much research, I found out that NAPA gave me the wrong parts and I ended up getting a whole hub (Timken) for a late '99 and a late '99 rotor both for under $200. All is well now, thanks for all the replies.
