Front Hub Bearings

I was driving down the interstate last night and my left front bearings decided to take a dump on me. I'm having the local diesel/tractor repair shop work on it. I havent asked them about price yet. Does anyone know about how much it will cost to replace? If/when I have the left replaced....should I go ahead and replace the right?

I am working on replacing my front bearings now, I know on a 4x4 the bearing hub assembly is about $400 from Dodge, and I think from O'Reillys they are around $250-$260. But can't remember exactly what they were, I will know for sure tomorrow when I go pick mine up. Good luck on it. But not sure on a 2 wheel drive, didn't know if yours was a 2 or 4 wheel drive. Best of luck!

I lost my right front at 120K. I think the part was about $150 and ~3 hours of labor to replace.

On my old 96 PSD I had to get my bearings replaced at around 240k, and they charged me an arm and a leg from what I remember .

Mine are being replaced at 94,000. But they had a lil conflict with a big puller and hammer, O well, had to be replaced sooner or later. The shops wanted to charge an arm and a leg, but I only gave up an arm to buy the bearings and put them in myself. ALready have it torn down to put ball joints in. My bearing and hub assembly was right at $300 each.

Does anyone remember there was a thread a while back that had a link to a part that was supose to help the life of the front bearings? I think it was bolted on to the frame some how and took some of the weight off of the hubs.

I posted this link and no one replied to it. It is a conversion for cheaper wheel bearings and you would also get better fuel mileage from this too. But no one seemed interested.
