Hub Assembly Spline

Hey folks! Still a noob here, and sooner or later I should be able to contribute BACK to the forum. For now, here's my next question...

2002 F350 XLT 4WD (ESOF) SRW stock auto lock hubs 4ABS.

I've got some noise in the driver side half shaft and it looks like the u-joint is bad... no prob, I'll THOR that out. But, since I'm there, I might as well change out the wheel bearing assembly (130K on OEM bearing). The problem is, I see there's two different spline counts. Are those counts for the half shaft, or for the hub locks?

And, more importantly, is there a way to find out what my spline count is BEFORE I tear it down? The problem is the bearing assembly seems to take 24 hours to order, so I can't pull it down on Friday night and order the parts and get it back on the road by Monday.

Knowing what spline count I need BEFORE the job will allow me to to order the right assembly and have it in the truck the night I begin pulling it all apart.

Thanks!

Well, now I feel stupid!

I checked again, and all the hubs had the same number of splines when I lined up the features I needed (SRW, 4ABS, 4WD).

At O'Reilly they have Master Pro and Precision Hubs. Anybody have a preference? The Precision version is $50 more than the Master Pro. I also found a Timken assembly on Amazon for about $100 more.

The only thing is there NOW seems to be a distinction between fine and course studs. I guess if I order new studs and nuts to match, it won't matter.
