Finely had to do mine they lasted 115k great write up. Funny I got everything buttoned up went to pull my truck out of the garage and I got a CEL and burned up a glow plug. Damn it luckily I had one on hand took me longer to get everything back out then to do the work.

My CV splines where stuck in there good. I was fighting to get the hub off and just about to go get the BFH and a wood block when she came lose.

Thank you for taking the time to assist everyone with the nice tutorial.

You make mention of the "captive" nature of the assembly. Both of my front wheels (120,000 miles) have about 1/4" of play in them. What is the likelihood that one is going to fly off the truck while I drive down the highway?

I know they need to be replaced but do I have a little bit of time?

just finished up my 07, feels like i did 5 rounds with tyson. One tool i really needed and i forgot to pick up was the slide hammer. Aside from a couple of harbor freight tool casualties, swap didnt go too bad. Both rotors wouldnt come off the hub so i ended up taking them off with the hub. Put some cheapo carquest rotors on until i can order a new set of gm rotors and pads. This calcium chloride they put down in the winter is just lethal.

Just to clarify; Is ANY slack in the assembly acceptable ? My pass side has more slack than the drivers did when I replaced it and I didn't notice any difference in vibration or brake wear when I replaced it. I bought my first from DMAXstore and will this one too.

No not on my truck
no movement that feels like it originates from the center of the wheel is acceptable
I dont even like the tiny bit of play found in the steering box
Summit has timkin and 2 others
orilies/shucks or whatever has precision and one other
Both sources i got for under 170
perfect fit on both
The job can be done in 30 minutes, give or take, with a jack in your own garage, if you are good
The stealership quoted me 750 parts and labor for one side

My bearings had absolutely no play when I jacked the truck up and pulled on the top of the tire. The only indication I had was the unbearable howl at highway speeds.

Last week I lost my drivers side cv axle and yesterday the wheel bearing went. I drove a few days without the cv axle since I assumed it would not be needed.....but now I am not so sure anymore.
More than likely the loose cv axle put some abnormal stress on the wheel bearing which
caused the damage.
I was planning to drive some time without the cv axles for some time before making up my mind on what to replace them with.

It's my understanding the OE bearings have to have the CV in place but the newer design does not.

I've went about 200mph without the front axles.

The P/N for the 4x4 is the same as the 2wd AFAIK. Both have axle splines, but only one has axles.

I removed my axles after blowing the front diff and the right hub bearing didnt last 20 mile. Now I have timbken bearings. All is good now

I don't get it, the truck that i have lifted, modified and i play around in with 153k on it, no problems with the bearings. The truck that has been stock its whole life with 143k on it lost the bearing recently. Should be the other way around, will be doing mine when the timken until shows up.

The new Timken bearings are the same for 2wd and 4x4. The stock wheel bearings up to an 07 Classic (maybe higher) 4x4 will need a CV to keep the bearing together.

Timken redesigned their hub a few years ago to work with both. This makes it nice if you lose a CV, it can be removed until you get a new one without worrying about the bearing coming apart.

For those wondering, I wouldn't run anything but a Timken. They are the best!

lol my truck went something like that. LF went out 10k after putting my lift and 37s on, truck had 95k at the time. RF lasted till 165k and it finally started giving play. LF now has 80k on it and still tight as can be!
