I was referencing the rear hub assembly. Steve at tousley ford sells parts 10% over cost so it will be cheaper than local dealer. The front hub will be considerly more. If You had a bad front wheel bearing, it would be easier to replace the hub. But it will cost way more than buying bearing and have pressed in.

The reason I suggested just buying the hub for the rear is because its so cheap. I needed to replace my rear bearing, bought bearing and took hub to local garage to press in. They were busy which meant I had to leave it and wait. Finally get a call saying bearing wont come out. The garage has pressed out bearings in past. Had to put back together and order rear hub for next weekend to install. I value my time and I wasted a lot of time, if initially I bought the hub.
I now drive a Japanese Ford.
