I have a '07 Camry LE with 46,xxx miles that is in need of a front hub replacement. I was wondering how difficult the job is? and whether the steering knuckle needs to be pulled, tie rod disconnect to do the job?
Thanks for the replies. I was under the impression that the Hub was a contained unit but sounds like I will be needing only to replace the bearings.
problem is not damage related. Am getting front end noise (drone/rotational sounding) coming from the drivers side.
Hello. My car ('02 Toyota Camry LE auto 2.4) was diagnosed today as of needing a hub bearing (front driver side and I just changed both front sway bar links and control arm bars[DORMAN]) which is actually called a wheel bearing I presume. That being said why is that I'm reading that that is rarely in need of change? I also have to change the rear sway bar links. There's another long bar adjacent to these bars but my mechanic didn't know the exact name of it in English (he's Vietnamese) too well and its loose as well.Very good question, I just assumed he had it diagnosed and was inquiring on how difficult.
EXACTLY! That's the bar! Shouldn't this be changed at the same time with the hub bearings kit? And when changing the hub bearings is it best to change both sides? Mechanic said I only need the drivers side. I always seem to get a problem trying to order online with Rock Auto.I'd recommend a Timken bearing and hub kit for $70.79+shipping. You'll need two kits if replacing both sides. Use the 5% discount code: http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/1...084-rockauto-discount-code-9.html#post6026730
