After replacing booster on son's 2000 4runner I now find out that his brakes are a mess. He needs rotors, pads, and front hub bearings. It would cost more than vehicle is worth to bring into shop so I am hoping I can do it. After looking at some of the videos involving replacing individual bearings I see that there is a lot that can go wrong.

I was hoping I could buy the WHOLE HUB BEARING ASSEMBLY so I do not have to fool with pressing and removing individual bearings, BUT I am starting to think that it is not possible until 4th generation and/or 4WD!!!

Have not been able to find anything on replacing FRONT bearings for a 2WD 2000 4Runner 3rd generation. I have found rear, and 4WD but not the same as 2WD Front.

Does anyone have an instructions, video, pics, or just anything info that might help? I have spent 6 hours looking online with no luck. Thanks

There is a lock nut on the 'back' side of the hub under the dust cover that must be removed, then it is standard press work. There is no bolt-on ways of doing it. You may be able to find a shop that will do that work for fairly cheap if you bring them the kuckles off the truck. Use OEM or Koyo bearings.

Call around, even different make dealerships like Honda. Press work at private shops shouldn’t be more than $40-50 each. Dealerships double.

Either OEM bearings from online dealers or just get Timken on rockauto, search up a 5% off code. Timken usually reboxes OEM Koyo or NSK.
