Hubs Bearing or Wheel Bearing

Today I replaced my stock hubs with warn hubs. I did this because it was making a really loud popping noise. Replacing the hub did not fix the problem. My questions are. Is there a bearing back further inside where the hub is or is it just a wheel bearing that is making the noise. Also after driving the hub that I am having a problem with is warmer than the other

I replaced my auto with manual locking hubs. I always lock mine if I want to use for 4x4.

Sounds like your hub bearing assembly. I just replaced my a few months ago. Not to bad of a job after youve done it once. Mine was popping like crazy and would almost stop the truck from rolling.

Is the hub bearing assembly the entire hub which costs around $300? The old locking hubs look good they need a little cleaning and some grease but I'm no expert.

One of them turns a little rough but the place I changed them at said that it just needs to be cleaned and lubed up real good. It has some scratches on the outside but its just cosmetic. How much do you want to give for them?
