spindle bearings

someone mentioned to me the other day that rangers with the ttb front end have a tendency to go through spindle bearings quickly. im not sure how credible their information was, but is this true? my tuck is a 97 4wd with almost 100k on it. is checking the spindle bearing the same as checking the inner and outer wheel bearings? any info would be great.

Pull your wheel, pull the hub cap, if there is play in shaft then replace your bearings. Mine have a lot of play and need replacing, but I'm waiting to do it cause I don't have the time right now, other projects to tackle first.
