the spindle bearing (for the axle) can be greased....the wheel bearing can not. Its a sealed cartridge style unit...

Thanks Marc, although that is not what I was hoping to hear! Two of my friends with near identical trucks to mine had the front bearings go bad at 60k miles is the reason I ask. We have a big trip to Colorado planned soon and I am a little concerned about having trouble on the road. What life expectancy are other folks seeing in these bearings?? Thanks again.

Theres an upgrade kit bt Dynatrac that replaces the cartridge bearing to the old school tried and true servicable type. Costs around 2 grand I believe.

Yeh but they really shine with OVERSIZED tires... 35" inches and up... people running tires like 40" definitely need them! LOL.

I was going to order Dynatracs - they weren't quite 2 grand, but they were up there... they were also 2 months on backorder. May not be anymore.

The wheel bearings will cose you 300 per side if you go to Powerstrokeshop.com - PSD and Ford Superduty Parts

They're easy to do also... definite DIY job...
