Front Wheel Bearing Hub

Front Wheel Bearing Hub

Postby SilveradoSPaz [OP] » Jul 30 2013, 3:24am

I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado 2 wheel drive with front disc and rear drum brakes. I am going to do a brake job on my truck and want to replace the front wheel bearings. I have plenty of experience with the old style tapered bearing rotors and I have done fairly complicated repairs on vehicles, including a lifter replacement on my 5.3L GenII. I also work as an industrial mechanic and have access to a decent amount of tools and equipment for doing repairs. Lathes, mills, press etc...

What I am wondering is if anyone has tried to rebuild their own front wheel hubs on the newer style?
Is it possible?
Is it fairly easy?
What Bearings does it take?
Seals?
Special Tools?

I am confident in my ability to take apart and put back together again pressed together assemblies but always try to get a heads up on a job before i start and make sure i don't get stuck waiting on parts or not knowing some specific piece of information that makes it possible to complete.

Thanks In advance

I've never seen anyone rebuild them. They are easy to replace. I like them much better than having to pack wheel bearings.

I dont think that they can be rebuilt. It's a sealed unit. Even if you could, replacing would still probably be cheaper.
