No, the front uses the whole unit bearing. Just did mine the other week, paid I think about 220 for Timken ABS hubs at Rockauto. Use this code to get 5% off...they emailed it to me, and told me to spread the word, so I will.....

Thank you for being a www.RockAuto.com customer! To show our appreciation, we have a special discount for you. Your discount code is: 843752747372 Here's how to use it: * Enter your code in the "How did you hear about us" line of the shopping cart. * If you are using our traditional HTML catalog, please click the "Set" button to the right of the field. * Your discount will automatically appear, subtracted from your order total. **NOTE: We sometimes get calls from people who put the word "discount" in front of their code and do not get the discount. Please enter ONLY the discount code, no other words or numbers.** The discount takes 5% off our already-low prices, and there's no limit on order size or the number of orders. Use the code for your next order, and share the code with friends, neighbors, relatives, the guy at the corner garage--anyone you know who works on cars or trucks. This discount code expires on January 22, 2008; so don't wait!

Did mine I just eliminated the abs, probably not the best idea but a cheaper solution.

Last time I ordered wheel bearings it was from here.

http://www.fordpartsonline.com/

They had the best prices i could find. FYI, abs units are cheaper than non.


They ebay bearings typically are the same ones sold at Yoyozone for 325. At least when i looked. YMMV.

From what I seen the non abs units are cheaper because there are less parts its the same thing between the two the only difference is in the abs one is it is drilled and tapped fro the abs speed sensor. Ia told the guy guy at the ford part parts counter I did mine like that and eliminated the front abs I said I would be fine just gotta be a little easier when braking hard becuase the fronts will lock up.

These prices change monthly, 2 months ago i bought a abs bearing for 175. The non abs version was over 180. If you look now they are both over 200.

Ford changes the price on these like it was oil.
