Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2000 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
My tire rotation shop told me at the last tire rotation that my front wheel bearings are worn (have play in them) and need to be replaced. I was told the wheel bearings are sealed in an assembly along with anti-lock brake sensor and that the cost of the bearing assembly was approximately $350 per side for total cost of approximately $900 (includes labor) to do both sides. My question is can the bearings be replaced without having to replace the entire bearing assembly? Also is this a job that can be done by a do it yourselfer who has a good mechanical appitude?
