    I need a little help/advise concerning the replacement of the front wheel bearings on my 1999 4runner LTD 2wd w/abs. Specifically,in the experience of this forum, is there a vendor that sells a complete flange/hub/bearing assembly that will fit the 96-02 Runner? Is there a vendor that sells just the bearing suitable for the ABS application? Has anyone made a modification so that a later (03 -up) model hub assembly will fit(ie. Dorman or Beck Arnley)? Any help will be most appreciated.

    BTW, the Toyota parts house has the individual parts which it will gladly sell for $400.00+ per side, so please refrain from referring me to them.

    I can get you the OEM hub and bearing for about $250, which is typically all you would need. I've never seen a hub and bearing assembly already put together for this.

    A little late in the post for this since it is a couple months old, but I have been building and selling these as a complete assembly for 6 years now! Just check out my website at www.marionbumper2bumper.com
    I am a vendor here.
