Needle Bearing and Hub Replacment

So I am going to do ball joints, u-joints, etc on the front end (220K unknown history) Front End Refresh.

I was wondering if I replace the Wheel Hub Assembly does this come with the needle bearing or do I need to get that separate as well?

Thanks
Eric

Ahh sorry I thought you meant locking hub

either style unit bearing should have it's respective inner bearing weather it's sealed or the needle style

funny that pic you put up shows all the components since they are pre assembled and non serviceable due to the torque values needed to rebuild them EDIT NM thats a stock photo

here is my style .. not sure when they did away with the needles ?


this shows both styles looks like 05 was the transformation http://img1.pirate4x4.com/forum/gene...hate-em-2.html

so you can use Guzzles directions have you seen his page ? if not a Google will pull it up

Can I use the later sealed bearing type to replace my needle bearing type?

Its so lame that they aren't serviceable.

I understand not everyone has the tools to do it, but for those that do they should sell you parts for much lower cost.

u can take em apart and find the separate bearings from what I have read ,,

I doubt I would but when one of mine does go I may play with the old unit ,, However I can see why they would fear someone not getting it together correctly and to spec


u can't use the newer style IMHO the axle stub is also larger so my DIY driver seal had to be 2 inch pipe vs 1 1/2 like the older
