front wheel hub assembly

2001 Ford F350 4x4 single rear wheel needs front wheel bearings replaced. I have been told that these trucks have sealed bearing in the front hub assemble ant that I have to buy the whole hub. Is that true and if so where is the best place to get hubs. Thanks for the help

It's true.

Autozone sells them for fair coin at $184 each, Timken brand, 515020 (This fits late 99 to 2002)

Yep. I just consulted the 2001 SD bible on this, and it says the whole hub must be replaced if the bearings fail. I would only buy reputable brand name part on the hub.

I have purchased 2 units for my 2001 SD from rockauto.com. Best total prices I can find, even with shipping costs. I bought Timkin brand with ABS sensor. The bearing units are not designed to be serviced, no matter who makes them.

I recommend buying the ones with the ABS sensor even if you don't have ABS. You can then remove the sensor and grease the bearing. If you do, there is a fitting you can buy from Riff Raff Diesel: Front ABS Grease-able Block Off Fitting that will let you service these non-serviceable bearings. I bought two of these fittings, even though they are only temporary use for me. I put them in, grease the bearings and take the fittings out.
The wheel studs are changeable, so if the ones on your truck are still useable, you can get the lesser cost bearing unit. That is what I did.

i replaced both of my front ones. the entire hub gets replaced. my advice would be to find an extra set of hands... it'll go faster.

One more thing. These hubs DONT come with the 4 hub studs. You'll have to remove them from the old units or get new ones, prolly just from Ford. Thats all.

I bought moog units that came with studs and the new Yellow O ring. Probably not the best move on my part but Im trusting its still a quality part.

The Timkin ones I purchased came with yellow oring, ABS sensor, mounting studs and wheel studs. I guess the brand is what will determine what comes with it.

Also went with Timken from autozone at $184 a piece. 3 yr warranty. They aren't bad at all to replace. And they even came with new bolt studs where every other brand I have bought you had to swap them over from the old hub. Easy change. I say 30 min per side with out air tools. Or maybe I have replaced these way to many times. Count on a hour per side for the first time.

Did you need a puller to remove the hub and bearings?

Nope. Remove the wheel, brakes, and front locking hubs. Snap ring and thrust washers behind locking hub and the 4 nuts behind where the front ujoints is and you are good to go. Should pull right out.

No. Bolts on the back of the bearing next to the axle shaft are what keeps the bearing attached, not friction.
  1. remove brake cylinder and disc
  2. take the 4x4 hub off,
  3. remove snap ring and two other spacers (remember how they are positioned)
  4. remove ABS sensor (if you have one)
  5. remove 4 nuts next to the axle shaft
  6. pull bearing off
