ok local parts store failed or durango with 65k miles for a drivers front wheel bearing. they even claimed it was so bad we would hear it when we turned left at any point. we don't hear anything.

now we need to do the wheel bearing to legally drive it. I believe they are full of sh*t but we did just pull an ever loaded screwhual 350 miles so they may need replaced so.

any one know the parts number for the driver front wheel bearings and the cheapest place to get them.

I wouldn't go cheap or you may be replacing them sooner than necessary.  Also they tend to be messy if they lock up.  I'd go with NAPA or better.

You are looking at buying hub assemblies, not just a front wheel bearing.  Good news?  Labor isn't bad.  Bad news?  Hub assemblies aren't cheap.

A few questions you'll need to have answers for...

Does your Durango have 4-wheel ABS or rear wheel ABS?  Easiest way to tell is checking for reluctor fins on the back of your front rotors...if they have them, it should be four wheel.

Do you need the hub assembly with or without the sensor?  

Do you want hub assemblies with a 3 month or 12 month warranty?  PGB is lower line and BRG is higher line, but I haven't seen either line coming back with defects/complaints.

You're looking at anywhere from $127 for a hub assembly, 3 month warranty, w/o sensor, and w/o 4W ABS....to $300 for a hub assembly, 12 month warranty, w/ sensor, and 4W ABS.

Yup, it's a full hub assembly just like on the '94 and up trucks.

and now I should ask what's it take to remove a hub assembly?

and is their a difference between the left hub and the right hub when ordering from napa... I noticed the some of them do differentiate between the 2 some don't on the napa sight.

Check Rockauto.com, looks like you might be able to get a Timken hub assembly there cheaper than the cheaper NAPA line.

Sorry...the lines are PGB and BRG...the bearing numbers begin with PBR and BR respectively...long day.  :-\

If they have the sensors, the hub assemblies will differentiate between left & right.  The hub assemblies w/o the 3-bolt mounting plate are for 2WD's and held on by an axle nut.  So, if I eliminate the sensor assemblies and 4 wheel ABS, these are the numbers I come up with...

2x4

PGB PBR930361  $126.69
BRG BR930361    $136.88


4x4

PGB PBR930207   $126.69
BRG BR930207     $192.99

i'm assuming that the switch on the dash that allows it to go between 2 and 4 wheel drive makes it a 4x2 thus I would need the PGB PBR930361  $126.69 is this correct?

Nope...makes it a 4x4, so you would need PGB PBR930207 $126.69

Have the parts store look up the part for you , then have them see if they came up with the same number (if you go to NAPA) or have them interchange our number against theirs. The online listing isn't exactly my favorite thing to work from, and I may have missed a detail somewhere. :)
