Well I been having a grinding noise in the front of my Duramax I checked on a front hub from GM dang wanted almost 400 bucks for it they ant no way. 170 at Advance, I bought one today off ebay for 80 bucks. My buddy at the GM dealership said most of them were made at the same factory with different names on the packages then raised the price. I reckon we will see. I bought 2 of them a year ago off ebay for my cousin for his 2500 he has not had a problem out them. I havent drove it in months with this clot been thinking bout even selling it. I reckon Ima keep it a while longer it just has 79,000 on it for a 2002 6.6 Duramax thats hard to beat.

I think all full sized Chevys have the sealed bearings. I know my 1999 half ton does.

Is it much of a problem changing those out?
