Front hub assy.

i think i need a new hub assy on my f250 7.3 4x4, how do i detrmine if i need a 10mm or 13mm and if i have 4 wheel abs or 2 wheel abs? also should i do both at the same time and are there any other parts i should be replacing while i already have the wheel off? are there any specific manufacturers that i should stay away from?

10 or 13mm? Are you talking about lugs? If so, what year is your truck?

ABS? Just look at the front brakes. If there is a line with an electrical connector, you have 4 wheel ABS. 2 wheel is rear only.

Replace both sides? Not needed if only 1 side is bad.

Extra parts? I would HIGHLY recommend going to Ford and getting 4 new hub studs and nuts, especially if you live in an area that gets snow/salt. Also get the axle seal and dust seal from Ford instead of aftermarket. While the axle is out, you may as well change the U-joint if it is original.

While it is apart is also a good time to check your ball joints really closely too.

You still haven't said what year your truck is? Does it have 4 wheel ABS?

You do not need to remove the axle to do the hub bearing.

He is doing the hub assembly, so you better make damn sure you don't damage the axle seal in removing the hub. If you do, you will not only be replacing the hub again in short order, but you will be pulling the axle too.

In other words, it takes 2 extra minutes to remove the axle and another 10 to replace the seals (that most likely are factory original). Spend the extra $70 and do it the right way.

And BTW, if you (OP) have 4 wheel ABS, the part you quoted is not correct.

Let me ask you this, has the truck ever had ball joints done? If so then the axle seals are probably not original. You need to pull the axle to do ball joints, but not to do the hub assy. I just did one on my truck about 3 weeks ago.
