Do this right.
Figure out which is the easiest to work on. If you are taking it to the mud and off road then research ball joints, hubs, other suspension items. You will be changing them.
I just found out I need hub bearings for my truck. $560 and it's not even a 4wd.
See what I mean? That is the type of stuff you need to know cause that is the stuff that will be going out.
Do it yourself. I replaced mine for $40. To include new diff oil.
They guy at the tire place said to replace both sides takes 8 hours labor. The bearings themseves aren't that expensive.
I bought two front tires Tuesday and replaced a tie rod and had a wheel alignment. Yesterday was when it started making noise.
Somebody lied to you. If it’s the front and it isn’t 4 wheel drive, I don’t see what’s so difficult about it. Take off the wheels, get a bearing puller and yank it out. Tap a new one in, and refill with oil. I replaced mine in about an hour
Yeah gotta watch those grease monkeys at the shady tree. My neighbor is changing my ball joints for me while I'm out of town otherwise I'd be doing it.
Man, it’s everywhere. All mechanics think that because you bring it to them that they can overcharge. I can understand if you don’t have the time or place to do work, but even renting tools is hundreds cheaper than most places. But laziness is another factor. I’m guilty of that.
Or in your case, the stealership.
