    My front right wheel hub is going bad. I paid a mechanic to do the left a few months ago and figured I could do it myself a little more cost friendly. I stumbled across a step-by-step instruction w/pictures on how to do it, but i cant find it now. The guy who had it referred to himself as a "Lock Tight Whore" lol or something to that effect. Id greatly appreciate some pointers/advice!

    Thanks

    I have been running Timken hubs for awhile with no problems, ordered them from autozone. Have used a master pro hub and national hub, both wore out less than a year. Just some data, hope it helps.

    We carry the Motorcraft, Timken and house brand hubs for the Sport Trac.

    I just did the hubs on my 04 Grand Cherokee and used the Timkens that we sell.

    My truck rides awesome on the highway again. Nice and smooth;)

    If you have an 02 4X4 here's a link to the pair of them. They include a 2 year warranty also.

    A while back, Rock's shipping charges negated the savings, not sure if that is still true, I know that they have been dropping prices because people stopped shopping there...

    Thanks bud. Plus we offer a 2 year warranty on them where a lot of places only offer 1, and we help our customers out by shooting installation videos on a daily basis of all the parts we carry.

    We also stock about 95% of our inventory, so if it's in stock it's here on a shelf, and for the most part not being drop shipped.

    Parts we don't stock are carpets, tops, and upholstery because there are just to many variables with that stuff.

    Another question, Timken has 3 hubs that'll work: SP470200, SP450202, & SP470201. Rockauto carries SP450202, is there much if any difference detween them?

    It more than likely has to do with the options that the truck has such as ABS,4WD,2WD Etc.

    I didnt think they were made with anything other than steel too, but i guess certain model may have... The guy at autozone isnt sure but i assume they're steel
