Hey guys. I was driving today and my steering wheel started to feel wobbly. I've been planning on changing my dif fluid but its been so cold recently, so when i got home today i jacked my front end up and both my tires are wobbly. I've never done wheel bearings before, but i was wondering what the extent of the job is, and if there are any other things i should get while i have my wheels apart. I figure i should do both my front and rear. what do you guys think?
Do you have any part numbers? I have stock front and rear axles on my 96 v6 4.0 4x4 ranger. Manual Warn locking hubs.

I was thinking about going to autozone and ordering some parts, but autozone stuff usually breaks quickly. Should i go OEM? Opinions needed please :( This truck has been nonstop maintenance for me.
