    Yep heard grinding and the ABS light comes on under slow braking and there is play on the driver sidewheel when checking with wheel off the ground. My question is what is everyone's choice in hub. I was going to go with AC Delco.

    oem, timken, moog are all good, rockauto probably has the best price for a oem one but I would check them and ebay/amazon, rare to find one cheaper anywhere else

    It must be in the air. My truck d/s was just replaced on Thursday. No lights popping up on the DIC but the gawd awful drone was nuts. I had my Indy replace w/ an A/C Delco unit.

    Did an oil change, hub/bearing, new AGM battery, 4 new tires and alignment. I did discover the rough ride at 140k miles is from the orig shocks still on the truck

    I found OEM on Amazon for $132 shipped, for us in Canada that is an awesome price.

    It has been proven time after time that this is one part to not cheap out on. Timken is or was the OEM supplier for GM. I'd aim for that or run Moog if Timken or ACDelco Original (not ACDelco Professional and certainly not ACDelco Advantage) weren't available.

    Yes, you did great if you got an OEM hub for $132 shipped.

    Ya just ordered it I didn't want to cheap out. My wife and grand kids ride in it. Plus I find if you buy cheap you will get cheap products.

    Does anyone know the torque specs for the 3 mounting bolts for the front hub assembly? I just changed both front on my 02 yukon and torque them to 140lb but I wanna be sure that’s correct.

    You make great points about why to change it and IMO that means both should be done. If they are the same age then the other will go soon.

    Stick with the quality parts mentioned here by the other members.
