You can't replace just the bearing, you must install a new hub assembly.

See parts list for part #: http://rivperformance.editboard.com/series-ii-engine-transmission-f4/part-number-listing-t45.htm

Are you sure you need a new one?

Not 100% sure, no. my trac and abs lights r on. ill b replacing the struts real soon and i figure i'd go ahead and do that too while im already there. the shop fee is 80$/hr, 1 hr min. for diagnostics. i dont wanna pay that if i dont have too. w my miles i thought it a safe bet t go ahead and change them. Any thoughts how i should go about this???

If they're original after 225k miles, might be a good idea. But the hubs are pricey at about $125 apiece. If you want to do the install yourself, no need to pay $80/hr. It's a medium level DIY repair.

no, i meant 80$ for a diagnostic t tell me why my trac and abs light r on. they probably charge more than that for changin them out. im certainly capable of doin it in the front yard. thanks for the help, man!!! appreciated! cheers

I'll probably have some information to report in this area soon.

My ABS/TCS pump will cut on and off while the car is just sitting idling and on occasion while moving. After this occurs several times during a run cycle, the ABS/TCS is deactivated by the computer. Other than that, the ABS/TCS seem to work fine. (The only thing I can think of is a shorting somewhere or a wheel speed sensor failure) Additionally, there is extra cabin noise coming from the wheel(s) that sounds like a possible product of a failing hub bearing. The noise is a constant sound that is similar to the noise that you hear from the road to the tires but significantly louder and if I'm next to a wall or something that can reflect the sound more, I can hear kind of like a ticking sound that correlates to my speed and steering. Interestingly, there is no vibration problem to speak of. It still rides smoothly.

Side note, I'd been having a rather annoying issue of my brakes making some noise ever since I put them on and I'm hoping it is, in fact the hub(s)

I have two new hub assemblies for it and I hope to get them on by this weekend. I have a trip this weekend so I need to get it figured out by then or it's going to be an interesting trip.
