Default Wheel Bearings Replacement

Well ill spare you the details and cut to the chase. Im about 90% sure one or both of my front wheel bearings is gone or going. Can anyone give me a rough Idea of what this is going to cost to get fixed? Obviously an exact estimate is going to be impossible, but a rough idea of what to be ready for would be nice.

PS this means no wheels

Around 150 for for parts, depending where you get them, both hubs and about 200-300 in labor, maybe cheaper. Wheels removed, calipers and rotors, big nut holding the axles and strut bolts. The remove old hubs from spindle, install teh new ones and put all that stuff back.

Noise comming from the front thats hard to describe. Swoosh, swoosh is a common description. But I think it sounds almost like a whistling noise of something rubbing. That and wheel shaking

Default Re: Wheel Bearings Replacement

When my bearings went bad on my Taurus, they sounded like a jet engine spooling down as I slowed the car down. Some get a hum, some get the whoosh sound, some get a slight grinding sound. Replacement isn't that difficult, if you have some basic tools.

Exactly what mine sound like. My parents has a Sable (a tarus with a mercury grill) and the bearings went bad and the whole axle snapped!

Yup, they're bad. I just replaced them on my truck. They did the same thing. Don't wait too long or they will give you negative camber and eat your inside tire in no time.
