Hey everyone!

My front passenger side wheel bearing is getting noisy, as well as developing some play. I was planning to fix this myself with a new bearing ordered from rockauto

After doing some searching around the forum. I found a few outdated guides (missing pictures), as well as them being geared towards 4x4 models.

What I've found is that there does not seem to be a clear guide on putting new wheel bearings on 2wd models. I've also read/watched some things about needing a 20 ton hydraulic press that lead me to believe this won't be simple "bolt-on/off" replacement.

  • With the rockauto bearings, am I looking at a large headache of a task?
  • Would I be better off getting a full hub like this one from autozone
  • Can anyone point me in the right direction of a detailed guide with pictures or a video?
Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum!

See Images Below for Corresponding Order. This is a guideline only but the best procedure that I can find on a 2 wheel drive. Please disregard the CV or Axleshaft values as these are not present on 2wd.

So.... you can buy pre-pressed wheel bearings from a few sources these days. Spoiler...the 2WD ones are much more expensive (275 vs 175) than the 4WD because the people who build them have to use OEM Toyota hubs instead of aftermarket since they don't make them for 2WD.

EDIT: didn't see they had them at the parts stores....Yeah it would be 100X easier, but hard to say how long they would last.
