    Default Hub/Wheel Bearing

    My bearing went to shit last night, making the jeep undrivable. Do I need the whole assembly or can I just replace the bearing?

    Hmm...bearing assembly. I'm sure we have the same fronts unless yours is HP, so I'm gonna look at the breakdown.

    Mines high pinion but there is only 3 bolts that hold mine in. Takes me a couple minutes to get it off after the wheel is off. It takes a 12 point socket.

    Piece of cake Bro. take your outer axle retaining clip and nut off. then you can take the 3 bolts out and then pry that sucka out. reverse the process with the new bearing assembly.

    I am not a jeep expert but I did sleep at a holiday in express last night

    Oh, I know how to take apart the entire assembly, thanks to a mishap replacing a u-joint, but I just wanted to make sure I didn't have to drop ~120 bucks on a new hub assembly. I cannot find the "bearing assembly" that is being discussed.
