you have to buy the entire assembly. Pretty easy to replace.

Take off wheel, brakes, rotors, dust shield then unbolt the wheel bearing. Replace.

Actually no, his is a 99 which means its a pulse vaccume system. If I remeber right when I did mine, I think its 4 bolts??? or soemthing like that, then there is a circlip that holds your CV in place.

Pick up a haynes manual
