There was a piece of the drum hardware( the piece that keeps it from auto adjusting?) was just rattling around.. It had broke loose.. So, took that part out since it isnt an operational part of the brakes and whala.. no more sound lol... But i do need to get new hardware for the rear brakes.. Owell..
which is only like 20 bucks lol. Good to hear it was something small.

Just get a rebuild kit for your calipers another 20 bucks or so unless you have damage to the calipers that is beyond repair.

If you have any play at all, it's the bearings. And yes, as stated you will have to replace the whole thing. And yes they are pricing for 4WD vehicles.

And to answer you questions about the Timken being way more, I think they are just known as a very high quality bearing, so probably more expensive.

another way is to leave the truck on the ground, put your foot at the top of the tire, and push on the side of it really hard, if u feel a bangn your wheel bearings are going bard, also see how much play there is before the UCA starts to move
