Thanks Dude!

I didn't really search around much for prices. I knew i needed to replace my bearings since like a month back and then i found some one selling this kit, so i bought it! He said it cost him like 100. Everything in the kit was new and sealed in bags and stuff, plus it was complete.

yea...lol.. im kinda glad i dont have discs in the back now

all i had to do for mine was go out and buy a new drum with the bearing pressed in it already

on the drums, their pressed into the drum, so its a LOT easier

mine took about 15 minutes

Well, it's almost the same. I could have bought the hubs with the bearings already pressed in, but as i stated, i really didn't search around much for parts and pricing.

Plus i like to get messy and rub oil and grime all over my strong sexy body!

Great write up. The pictures were on point. When My car was under warranty and had to go to Ford they charged over $500 change out a bearing. This write up really simplifies things.
