F350 WHEEL & AXLE BEARINGS +

2001 Ford F-350

Other Category problem
2001 Ford F350 Four Wheel Drive 100000 miles

I was quoted $2200 to repair front end. The axles flop around and constantly turn even when the hubs are not locked and 4 wd is not engaged.

Ii planned to put new bearings in the wheel hub assembly and spindle but it appears they are not sold seperately. Advance auto sells the whole wheel assembly and not just the bearings, they say it is a sealed system. I find it hard to believe that everytime you need to replace your wheel bearings you have to buy the whole assembly, same goes for the spindle which is only sold by the Dealer. Please help with any suggestions. Thanks
