Timken bearings are decent. Rockauto, as Mike said, has best internet prices. Napa will have it for around $100 more I believe. Do you have ABS? If so, might as well get the ones that have the sensor included, costs more up front, but will save in long run if sensor goes bad down the road.

Not sure how much you are looking to spend or if you have any extra :spend: right now but you should consider the free spinning hub conversion. Here is one kit, but I think there are others out there. http://spyntec.com/category/dodge-00-02-spyntec-hub-conversion-kit/

Them are nice but will not work on my dually.A wile back i looked into them but i need some kind of adaptor.

The adapter for the dually just bolts on. I believe the adapter you have on your truck stock would still work.

If I remember correctly it has to do with the size of the lockout that the kit has with it that determines if the stock adapter will work or not. At the most if you choose to go this route you may have to have a minor bit of material removed from the inside of the dually adapter to clear the hub.

Does anyone know of a good trick to get the drivers side front 4wd axle shaft back in the diff. housing? Mine came off and doesn't wanna go back in. Or is it one of those things where you just have to play with it till it goes in?

Took a snoop over at RockAuto.com and for $100 to $200 for front bearing...

Thats where I got my bearings. Best price I could find, pretty fast shipping, and I have never had a problem with Timkin bearings. I would have liked to put the free spinning hubs on but couldn't afford it. Just my :2cents:

Not implying you would try it, but DON'T hit the end of the axle with a hammer to get it to go in. :nono: I was out wheelin' one day and someone was changing an axle in the woods and thats how they decided it was best to put it in. One of those things to laugh at and walk away. :lmao:

I agree -- that's pretty funny. I think I got the shaft in. The spacer that goes up against the bearing seems to in place. The shaft also seems to rotate freely and not bind up on anything so hopefully everything is how and where it's supposed to be.

I had the same thing happen, and was a little worried at first, but she slid back in there and everything's been working fine for over a year. You should be okay.

My buddy that works at napa got me the one that originally cost $250 or $260, somewhere around there. He got em' to me for $180. I originally wanted to go with Timken bearings, cuz that's what we usually carry at work but no one in town had em'. I needed to get this thing running and went with the napa ones. Hopefully they are good ones and last me some time. Those free spinning ones are real nice too, but just can't afford it... It would be nice to have though.

My NAPA was a Timken, if I remember correctly. I know I asked, and remember seeing it on the bearing, so you should be good to go. Even with my military discount, I didn't beat $180 from Napa. Nice to save a few bucks.

I got everything bolted down and just finished test driving the truck. It drives fine and everything except my abs and brake light are still on. I turned the ignition on 3 times and got the same code as before P0500. I feel like torching the ****ing thing! What do I do now?

Thats a VSS code, not ABS. http://forum.mopar1973man.com/threads/2583-P0500-No-Vehicle-Speed-Sensor-Signal. Not sure why you would get that code with the ABS light and brake light. Double check the ABS sensor wires for damage and make sure thwy are plugged in. I've been guilty of that one before. :doh:

Could be a pinched wire by the sensor. Did you replace the sensor with the bearing, or remove the old one and reinstall? If removed old and reinstalled, could be wire got damaged and shorting out from the removal process. If all is well, have Midas check with their snapon ABS scanner, maybe they'll even reset it for you. I know most inexpensive scanners won't do ABS codes.

No, the new hub/bearing came with the new sensor integrated. I'll have to double check everything. I doubt it's the passenger side.

My abs light didnt go out until i put 150 miles on.Dont sweat the 0500 thats a standard with these trucks.I replaced the speed sensor and i still get them.You could spin on gravel and set it off. Everyone told me that after replacing abs system the light will go out after 600 ft of driving.Not my truck.Give it a wile, i am sure you are fine if you completed the job(pluging them in)

I'm sure I plugged everything in. I'm too anal to let anything slide. I want everything running how it's suppose to be, if not, better and don't want other lights on the dash other than what is suppose to be lit. Im fixing to go outside and double check everything and lay on the the wet pavement (rained lastnight). I'm gonna get to the bottom of this!!

--- Update to the previous post...

I cleaned out the ABS connector and plugged it back in. Drove to the bank to withdraw some money and both ABS and BRAKE light turned off. Had to have been the connection between the plugs -- damn plugs!

It's amazing how much grief a connector will give ya.

Thanks again everyone!
