2000 250 with bad front bearing

I need info. My front wheel bearing is shot and I'm looking for a replacement on-line. Everything I see has the ABS feature, mine does not. Will an ABS version work? I have a 2000 250 Super Duty with the 7.3. Can these things be rebuilt (at home?) I only see hub assemblies.

Check the Motorcraft site. Pretty comprehensive. You can search by vehicle or VIN number. If it is a hub assembly type your stuck buying the whole assembly. To my knowledge they are not rebuildable.

Good luck!

Check this website.

1A Auto: Aftermarket Auto Parts, Car Parts, Replacement Auto Body Parts, Truck Parts

You can get a pair of wheelbearing assemblies there for your truck. At the cost of one wheelbearing assembly from anywhere else. I have been running there wheel bearings for 2 years now with no problems.

X2 for this site. I just replaced both sides on my 02 4x4. Wasnt bad except for the Knuckle Hub Seal on the first side. Then I figured it out and the second side was a breeze.

Thanks guys, I found the part at 1A Auto. Where would you advise me to get the seals? I think I am looking for F81Z-3254-CB and F81Z-1S175-HCA. I was gonna call the Dealer. In case you haven't figured it out, I am new to this Forum (and the net in general) but man it's a beautiful thing. I really appreciate the effort guys like you have put into this data base. I think I'm gonna through my Chilton's away!!!!

Well I got the yellow Vacuum o rings, the knuckle seals and the 4 knuckle studs (per side) from the dealer. The studs and the yellow rings are cheap but the knuckle seal are about 45 bucks each and that is in line with a few websites I looked at.

The seal that costs 45 dollars is the vacuum seal. If you do not care about the auto locking hubs. Then you do not need to replace those seals.

I dont comepletely agree with that statement. If your knuckle seal is worn it will allow dirt and water to enter the knuckle cavity and get into the needle bearings. That can ruin the stub axle and needle bearings. Look around for the special tool required to install it. It can be done without the tool.
