Yea they are ridiculous for a part that might fail in a year or two

I'm having what I think is the same issue as well, started as a squeak on the drivers side and has progressed to a grinding after 4 weeks in town driving. Hub and bearing ordered off eBay for $90. Hope it get here this week.

Ive replaced all four corners on my 05 in the last four years. Had to replace both rear bearings when the seals failed and doused the brakes in axle lube.

i am getting a squeel/squeek on harder acceleration, and a loud humming noise that changes with RPM. On rainy days it's quieter haha. I am pretty sure it's a wheel bearing, but they dont have the play that you would normally see in a bad wheel bearing.
Are you guys seeing the same thing?

Do them as pairs. They should never be done one at a time. Chances are if one if toast, the other one is not far behind. It's almost like tires, you never just buy one!

At the same time I'm going to go to long arms in at least the front, I'm sure parts are taking an extra beating on this short arm set up.

I did mine with a cheap part two years ago. Went bad in 18mos and replaced it again with a timken. Follow instructions above. Axel nut can be loosened with someone holding the brakes.
