Hey folks
Replacing. My front hubs on my 2000 F350 4wd. How do I identify 4 wheel abs. All retailers on line list both as options. Also what brand everyone suggest? SKF, Kryptonite, Mevotech?

I had to use the top tier Napa brand the other day. Turns out it is repackaged SFK with a repackaged price. Hopefully the quality is there.

Timken is best IMO buy from a retailer who gives lifetime warranty like carparts . com
look for ABS connectors at the bearings up front
it is not a true 4 wheel abs untill much later like 2012
Gotcha, yup fronts have electrical connector and coarse thread. Would i be looking at Timken part# 515020 or 515021?

Don't get Mevotech I just installed a set from Rock Auto last weekend and they came with the wrong thread pitch and length on the studs and one of the ABS sensors was cut in half.

That’s a part that returned after an attempted install. The original installer cut the abs wire because they were installing on a pre-abs truck. They likely also realized the thread pitch was wrong… after cutting the abs wire. 🤦

This was for a 2013, when I had my 02 F250 I had read that some of them had coarse vs fine thread pitch but didn't think it applied to the newer super duty's. I ended up just splicing the wires back with some waterproof butt connectors and pressing the studs out of all 4 hubs and pressing the old ones into the new hub. Not a super big deal but pissed me off as I was on the home stretch of my weekend front end rebuild and was just about over it at that point.

next time, get marine crimps where the insulation is shrink-wrap with a melting adhesive inside that seals around the wires (not all shrink wrap does this, just the marine kind). use a heat gun (or hair dryer) to shrink them evenly, they bond to the wires and form a water tight seal. if you drive in the winter, I bet those crimps won't last 3 years.

These were, this was prior to putting the torch to them. I wrapped them up in tape as well for good measure and saved my old ones just I’m case I end up having an issue with these.
