Another wheel bearing thread

If it were me, I would get one from a local wrecking yard, as shipping cost from a distant yard is going to be costly.
The other option is simply to go to a shop, have the wheel bearing swapped out with a new one. It requires a puller to remove the bearing that most shops have. I have had that done on my 98 OBW, which is like yours, and it was not costly. I prefer swapping out the bearing, because buying a used hub unit could result in your getting a bad bearing in that hub.

find a combination of low miles and cheap near your home and go pick it up.
or find lower mileage and cheaper in a non-rust state and have it shipped to you.
time and money is up to you. and mileage may only be known if you call. ask ''what if it's bad?'' and see what they say.
i don't think ''hub'' is the part you want. you want the ''steering knuckle''. there seems to be a few in SC for 25$. and some for 10$ in texas.
hope this helps.

Thanks for the replies. On that link that you gave I only saw RH (I am assuming it means right hand) so I am assuming that would not work on the left side.
your first post said ''My front right wheel bearing''.
if you enter ''steering knuckle'' in the search, you will be given the choice, left or right, ABS or not.
