Where is the best place to get a wheel bearing for my truck? Oreilly's said about $250, is that the going price, or can they be had for less?

You know if you find a part with the same warranty as theirs if it's cheaper then theirs they will price match to beat the compedators price even if it's not the same brand just has to have the same warranty as theirs does.

I bought mine from GMpartsdierct.com. It was about $190 shipped for my HD. The LD's might be cheaper. Just have to get a part number for it.

If is goes up and down it could also be your ball joints to but prob a bearing. It makes like a scratchy/squeeky/light grinding sound.lol I hope that discription helps.

I don't think they will warranty it with big tires or lifted right??? I know they throw a fit over here about that stuff.

Jack the wheel up, grab the tire at 12o clock and 6 o clock and move it up and down kinda quick and if it is bad you will feel the slack.

Yes there is, you can jack it up just enough to get a pry bar under the tire and pry up under the tire pretty good and if the joints move or have slack they are worn. Its real easy to do if you have someone to help you either watch the joints or work the pry bar. I check mine every week.lol
