Front end questions

Thought I had ball joints going out but upon further inspections it appears that both the front wheel bearings are needing replaced.

First off not having much luck on advance autos website at locating the parts i need for sure.

I thought about just doing the entire hub assembly but they dont even show a front but dont know if i wanna spend that much money on it since i just got the truck last week. the wife would be very upset. lol.

is there anything else i should go ahead and change since im already tearing the truck apart?

and any other advice would be appreciated.

wheel bearing is pretty easy. you're not goin too deep into the vehicle when ya do that. also, I got my wheel bearings at o'reilly auto for 180/piece for the off brand compared to 320 for name brand. both had lifetime warranties too. just an fyi from my view

i just went to oreilly and they dont have any lifetime hubs.

what hub brand and lock out is everyone running?

i need to take front wheel off but im sure the hole had the hubs locked in as the 4 wheel works but there are micky thompson cabs over the lockouts
