Thanks for this post. The "rubber seal that goes on the spindle" is included in the kit ??

I assume similar process is followed to replace the wheel bearings in case you have drums ?

+1


P.S. I've just read up on some stuff so in my case with drums, i replace the whole drum with bearing pressed in ?

Nice write up, this will certainly help those who have never done a hub job. I've replaced hubs on both Superduty and Exploder and it's just a easy as explained here. I wish the rears on my sons Focus had the disc brakes vs the drums tho.

This is a good thread. I have an '02 SE with drums. Dealer wants $140 per side, but Advance auto has them for $45. Question, is it neccessary to replace the water seal and snap ring?

Well, I didn't get the bearing done this past weekend, didn't have the correct torque wrench. So, I have ordered the correct tools and all good to go this coming weekend.

Great write up! I have 142K and it was time to change them. I went to Ford to see about getting that kit and all they could find was YS4Z-1A049-AA and all it included was 1 bearing, the snap ring and the spindle gasket for $88. I went to Advance and each bearing was $37. I also had to buy a 29MM socket (6 pt of course) for the hub. I called a machine shop to see how much pressing the bearing out would be and he said $45 each. I went to a nasty looking auto repair shop and they charged me 1hr labor ($85). I bent the dust caps back into shape on a vise and put them back on. So for $183 I got it done.

I had to buy the hub because the shop I used couldn't get the bearing out. they must have struggled with those bearings if they charged you an hour labor.
