I think the reason they say to replace the entire wheel bearing with sensor is just in case the tone ring has a broken tooth.

I know there was at least 1 person on GMTNation that just pulled the sensor out, cleaned off the debris on the end, and it was good.

The GMT360 is just known to eating wheel bearings. I am on my 4th set in 140k miles.

I agree it is a crap shoot. When test driving I couldn’t get it to drop that sensor with hard parking lot turns in either direction. I was thinking that if the bearing was bad I would have seen the sensor drop out. There is maybe 60k on that bearing so I am gonna try the $15.00 repair first.

Went after the front diff seal today. Missed with my bar and ripped the boot on the CV off and broke the clamp. It came apart and the needles all came out. Fuggg! Went and got a new shaft, installed the seal and gave it an oil change. So far no more leaking diff. Cost me 3X what I figured tho. Now I remember why I wanted to send it down the road.
