What kind of problems? Those bearings are sealed but can be greased. Do a search.

There are no standard, servicable wheel bearings like on your old truck. The wheel bearings are contained in a sealed wheel bearing/hub unit. This bearing hub is available locally, etc.

The link Brian gave is to re-pack/replace a needle bearing that sits in that bearing hub --- it is not a wheel bearing, but only a bearing to support the axle end.

Good luck.

If you really want to grease the MAIN wheel bearings, not just the stub axle needle bearings, here's a link:
http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/85...pics-here.html

However, if the bearings are already starting to go, this procedure won't be of much long-term value. It's a preventive-maintenance item, not a "fix".

Dealer MSRP is around $350. The OEM hub assembly comes with new hub-to-knuckle studs (4 of them) and one new hub o-ring (yellow o-ring to seal the hub for the ESOF if you have it). IIRC Ford used coarse threads until 2003, then they switched to fine threads on the studs.

Depending on the dealership, it could be more or less (probably not less). Some dealerships have more of a markup above MSRP than others. I was able to get my hubs through my "regular" parts guys for about $250/each (I replaced both my front hub assemblies recently).

I'm not sure what shipping would be (they are not light), but you can try Ed to see what he can do for you. Here's his site:

If you need a new set of hub and bearing assemblies. Here's a link to them on our site.
If you have any questions there are allot of options with these trucks such as 4x4 vrs non 4x4, 4 wheel or 2 wheel ABS, single or dual rear wheel etc.,some models have five different hub choices they could have came with depending on the options package.

I can help you weed through it if you need help.
