Right Side bearing shot?

Here are the truck's symptoms...I suspected ball joints, so I jacked Driver's side first, spun the wheel, spins great and ball joints seem to be good.

Passenger side, jacked it up, wheel doesn't spin far, tons of play up and down. There has also been a humming noise at 70+, and at lower speeds as well. Wasn't there when I had the 35s put on.

Am I looking at a new bearing? Also, is hub & bearing a complete unit? And finally, could the bigger 35s be putting stress on the older setup up front?

Thanks in advance...

Should I put grease back in the housing before putting the hub & bearing assembly back in, and also....

How do you get the 4 bolts out of the old assembly??

put wheel bearing grease on the needle bearing inside the hup assy that the axel shaft rides in other than that no. Do yourself a favor and buy 4 new studs for mounting the new assy to the spindle. You can usally reuse the nuts but the ford dealer has them if you need them. I just did my right side wheel bearing hub assy today as it was bad. I got a Timkin from autozone for $169 and it came with 4 new studs.

Wicked, thanks for the reply...I'm trying to track down 4 new studs as we speak. Needle bearing came with some grease already on it so I think it's fine.

Should I seal the new assembly to the axle housing with silicone or something? It's just metal on metal, but I'm thinking it's supposed to stay that way.....

Got er all done, rides nice now!

Is there a problem with having an ABS hub that isn't plugged in? (None of the the others have ABS)

You can just cut the wires if you dont have front abs.
