Wheel Bearing Hub Assembly?

I have been getting a vibration or almost grinding sound coming from under the front end as I am driving. Been driving me nuts, because i could not find it until I noticed my passenger tire was ****ed a bit funny.

Upon taking off the wheel and jacking the truck up I believe the wheel bearing is shot. ALOT of play with the tire and I can actually see the movement rite where the hub meets the axle.

Am I correct so far in my assumptions?

I am looking at replacing the hub assemblies on both sides. I have read that Early 99s are different from Late 99 assemblies. I am under the impression that since I have an early 99 I may as well replace them with the late 99 assembly and upgrade my rotors with late 99 rotors. Seems to be the cheapest and most intelligent way to go.

Thoughts and suggestions. What other parts am I going to need besides the assembly and rotors? Any special tools needed for this project?

Hubs and rotors, i would change the seals on the 4x4 axles also if it has the ESOF hubs.

do the balljoints and u joints while your in there, you won't need any special tools, just make sure you got a big socket set if your still on the factory lockers consider switching mine locked up and i think it caused my hub to go bad

Not sure what its called but check that bear/seal that the spindle sits in directly behind the hub assembly. Both of mine were bad and ended up destroying my hubs.....

that seals expensive and you will need a special tool to drive the new one on, replace it if its in bad shape.. you may have to replace the whole outer shaft due to getting new hubs a new needle bearing means it needs new races

I found mine at Carquest for $55. They had it listed as an oil bath bearing I believe. I'll check my reciept when I get home and get the part number

Ok so I can't find my receipt..... You should be able to take the old part in though and they can match it
