Unit bearing or Hub conversion

Im in need of either a new unit bearing or a good inexpensive hub conversion kit. Which would you do and where can I find a good hub conversion kit or a good heavy duty replacement unit bearing. For an 06 f350 4x4 it just started making noise but no play yet how long will my unit bearing last.

I drove it today and when the wheel was turned left and when backing up from the drivers side front tire I heard pop,pop,pop so could this be a u joint. not a wheel bearing. BTW I was in 4x4.

Were you on dry pavement. Either way check your u-joints on the front axle at the steering knuckle.

Mine sounds kinda like the tires rubbing the mud flap in 2 and 4wheel when turning left and it goes pop pop in reverse when wheels turned to left on the drivers side.
