Wheel Bearing Question

I bought my 99 super cab 4x4 just over a year ago, the guy i bought it from replaced the factory hubs with waren manual lock outs. my question is with this being done, does this mean i have a standard wheel bearing setup, spindle inner outter bearings, or do i have the hub bearing oe style? i have read about people doing the waren conversion and that eliminates the hub bearing and goes back to an old school spindle style set up. but im not sure if that is a seperate conversion or if its accross the board. thanks for any input.

i would assume its just the warn lock outs. I bet the hub is factory.
Just FYI, if you have an early 99 the wheel bearings are expensive to replace.Just get late 99 thru 02 hubs and get brake rotors for the same late 99 thru 02.Hub and rotor is cheaper by a lot then the early hub alone. Its ok to do one side only. Just remember what you did.

i bought mine offf ebay 120 shipped each one. Its a good bearing too. Look thru ebay. If you cant find one that you like i can find my paper work and give you his ebay name. Hes in nc I think moorsville. Guaranteed for life too, But shipping it back would be a pain.
but still cheaper then new ones.

The first thing you need to do is find out what your truck's production date is, that will determine whether you have the old style or new style.

If you have the old style (I believe on trucks built to 3/21/99) those are more expensive, BUT, you CAN CONVERT to the new style.

Personally, if you haven't done rotors yet, I'd recommend converting to the new style by replacing your hub assembly and rotor on both sides with the newer style ones. It'll be about the same price as buying 2 new hub assemblies for the old style.
