Wheel Bearing/Hub issue

Had a horrible front end noise this morning on the way to work. Sounded like i was pushing a snow blade on dry pavement. Made it back home & pulled the drivers side wheel & lock out. The end of the Spindle has quite a bit of play (up & down). I'm assuming the hub/bearing is shot. Can i just change it out & get a new lockout, or should i worry about the spindle? The teeth look fine. HELP!!

so long as the area where the needle bearings ride is fine, you should be ok.

A little movement in the spindle is okay, but if you have a bit too much it will pull your hubs apart and you'll constantly have the problem of torn up lockouts. Warn premiums will hold up to quite a bit of spindle play. Warn standards won't and the stock Ford auto's won't.
