    Hi all,

    Have a 2003 limited explorer with 57000 miles. Just recently found that when going above 50 mph there is a pretty noticeable hum while driving. If I sharply turn the wheel quickly it fades for a second. Also noticed a couple times the ABS light came on for a few seconds then went out. Just wondering if this sounds like a wheel bearing or not. If it is a front bearing, how easy are they to change. Any special tools needed? I have done brakes/rotors tie rods but never any bearings but would like to attemp if not to difficult. Thanks
