Default 2003 durango

sounds like the mil has a front drivers wheel bearing going bad. Sounds like a caliper grind we you turn the steering wheel one direction but the other way no noise.

Bell tire quoted over 500 for the part and labor. They said the part had something to do with the abs which from my research and knowledge I dont beleive this is correct.

From what I can tell all it takes is:

remove tire
remove caliper/rotor
remove spindle nut and cotter pin then bolts on rear of knuckle holding sealed hub
remove hub with chisel
reinstall.

Am i missing any thing. The hub is about 100-110

Might need to pull the abs sensor and the odds of getting it out without breaking it are not good.

on most of the unit bearings the abs sensor is in it. but you have the gist of it.

How was it getting "access" to the 2 bolts on the back side of the knuckle?
I heard it is a biatch. Any issues with abs sensor?

it has 3 bolts. a bit tight in the back but not too bad.
not all of them have front abs.
if yours does the part will be quite a bit more expensive.
if you are not sure if yours does and you have other wheels just pull it apart. you'll know.

if the steering knuckle is aluminum, good luck, there aluminum on the new rams and they dont like to come out. If its not aluminum, real easy to do

A lot of times if the sensor is in the hub it will come with a new one in it and you disconnect somewhere along the harness. Yes a lot of times if you do need to reuse it they dont come out with out breaking. You have the idea as far as repair goes. Turning the knuckle allows for more clearance and also remove the axle nut first. Without damaging the threads on the axle shaft push the axle back through the knuckle a bit. This should allow for more room as well. With a little patients these really are not bad to do. Might be helpful to have a torch handy. Sometimes the hub bolts are pretty rusted in there.My guess is that they quoted you that much A: anticipating problems removing the old one
B: They kinda just like to rip people off on things from my experience (quoted me tie rods when I just replaced em and took the truck there for an allignment)

Do it yourself. You can do it.
