I am looking to replace the wheel bearings in the rear of my 02 explorer, and figured I'd do the wheel hubs too. Are there any inexpensive hubs I can purchase? I found some ebay hubs with bearings for ~$25 or so, and was thinking of replacing the probably crab bearings with some good ones. Just not sure on the hub quality, if that even matters...

Not sure on the quality but for that price, you can't go wrong if you're doing the labor.

You'll need to bring in the spindles, too. Then it is a plug-N-play.

Gotta be better than some rusted old hubs with 140k on them right?

Is there anywhere that I can buy a hub, knuckle, and bearing assembly?

Edit: In case it wasn't clear, I mean as one assembled piece
