You can get them at NAPA and you have to replace the whole hub assembly. I highly recommend going to Ford and getting the new mounting studs (8 total) if the new hubs don't come with them.

Smile Hub Bearings

I had to replace mine a while back. I got mine at Powerstrokeshop.com . They are real helpful and at a good price. They have kits with all you will need. Studs and vac seals to do the job. I was really happy with the service and the fast delivery. Hope this helps and good luck.

Order hubs for a 2001 and get two rotors . . . its a lot cheaper!! You have to get the rotors though. You can reuse everything else. And definitely go to ford and get the 8 hub studs (4 for each hub) and 8 nuts for them as well. Make sure they don't give you wheel studs and lug nuts!!

I spent under $400 on everything . . . I got the hubs and rotors at Federated Auto Parts. You might want to do the U-joints and axle seals while yer in there . . . I did. Of course, I've done hubs on these trucks way more than once . . lol

So what your saying is just order hubs to fit the 2001 and also get 2 rotors as well. And get the 4 studs per hub. And some U-joints and axle seals.....then go about getting some wheel bearings?

The hub bearing is all one unit . . . there are wheel bearings in the rear axle but the front has just a hub bearing on each side. Your truck is 4 wheel drive right?

The hub bearing is cheaper for the 99.5-2003 trucks that is why I said go get some for a 2001. If you do choose to get those you will need the rotors for that year as well b/c the early 99's are different.

im in the same boat as you, i ended up biting the bullet and upgrading to the later model hubs while im in there im doing axle seals as well as ball joints and putting powerslots rotors and hawk pads in stead of stock, caame out to about 1200bux still waiting on the parts to come

fyi the hubs are $250 a piece unless you get the cheap knock off wich is still $190 a piece

I get a little bit of a discount @ federated auto parts and they have the lifetime warranty on them which helps me since I plow. Yes, replacing the other stuff while you are in there is a good idea but it can get costly. I did the axle seals, u-joints, lockouts, pulled the front driveshaft and did those u-joints, replaced diff fluid, etc . . . I always go overboard!
