Unit Bearing HELP!

Ok So I need to do all four ball jounts on my truck and atleast one unit bearing (passengers side) and I was wondering if there are any differences in the Unit bearings from the Early 99's to the Late 99-03's? Or are they the same? I have an early 99 truck with rear ABS only, which some trucks have 4 wheel ABS.

Any and all info on the best place to buy the Unit bearings would be great, as well as any info you might have regarding the differences between the early and late unit bearings, again I only have rear ABS so I wont need a bearing with front ABS. I know they are not cheap, which is the best name brand to buy? Prices, experiences, web-sites... anything would be very helpful.

Thanks

as far as i know, they are the same except the already noted abs/non abs. I cant help with aftermarket. I always deal with the ford stuff.

would you suggest just going to my local dealer and getting the bearing from them, or do you think I'll go broke if I walk into the parts department and ask them for one? I know they arent cheap, but I'd rather not over pay (ovbiously). Any idea on a rough cost at the dealer?

Wait!!! the early 99 and late 99 are different. What is the build date of your truck? Acctual date.

Jake, listen to your voice mail. I will link back a thread that I had about this a year ago.

Link to info on the difference between early99 and late99: wheel bearings on 4X4 - TheDieselStop.Com Forums

Part numbers are in the link for conversion to late99 as well.

Yes there is a difference and if you are doing the hub bearings do them both and do the updated ones, the older ones are getting expensive and harder to find.
