Question Wheel Bearing Question....

Hi All,

Believe I got a bad wheel bearing in the front. How can you tell if you have coarse or fine thread? Someone said you count the threads per square inch?

I dont have all the tools to do job myself as much as I would like to, but got quoted from a shop that deals strictly with diesels $700 ish for a wheel bearing job...

I do need to replace both fronts with pads,calipers,rotors due to rust and little rot starting....rears are done.

Anyone in the CT area that could give me a hand doing the job, figured I would throw it out there....

My Sig give info on truck.

I appreciate the time and info...Thanks All.

Your '01 should have coarse thread...14x2. It's pretty obvious just by looking, the coarse threads look odd to me on wheel studs, since they normally are fine. If you aren't sure, you could go to a hardware store. Take off a lug nut and bring it in with you. Find a 14x2 metric bolt and try threading the nut on. If it goes, you have coarse thread
