New Wheel Bearings on TV

Just had to replace the wheel bearings on my 2006 Silverado 2500HD FWD. 77,000 miles.
They replace the whole hub assembly on both sides, $275 each.

Had to replace one on my 2006 2500 before I traded it in, had around 60k on it. Can't remember how much I paid, but it wasn't cheap.

That's the only way with these new trucks they are all the same. It's sealed bearing. Did you replace them yourself? There not bad to change if you have the tools.

I had never had to replace a bearing in a truck that had under a 100k. That's why I couldn't believe I had a bearing go out at 60k. Actually I haven't owned a truck long enough to get much over 100k in 20 years. I did have a '65 Chevy with 350,000 on original untouched 250 straight 6.

Not cheap on the Dodge 2500/3500's either it's a fairly easy job to do on these Rams if it's not siezed in the spindle. I just did my U joints in the front axles what a PITA getting them out of the axle/hub yokes.

I traded it at 200,000 and other than normal maintenance I put very few parts in it.
wheel bearings
front brakes
knock sensors "under the intake"
water pump
shocks

I use to wrench on everything, now I can barely remember where the hood release is. I still like to do some tweeking on boat motors though, not nearly as crowded.

What ever happened to vehicles one could work on, and didn't have to pay 2 or 3 hundred bucks for the most simple part.
$275 for a bearing?
C'mon man!

Fords and Dodges can still be converted to regular tapered bearing manual locking hubs for abt 2k (Bigger gain on the Dodge given they run the front end full time vs the auto/manua hubs on the Fords). Guys have also modified the unit bearings on the Dodge HD's to have a grease zerk and seem to make them last longer.
