Ugh!

I have a front wheel bearing that is complaining loudly right now.. I've seen the replacement process and it's very straightforward, IF you have a lift and a tie rod puller and a bearing press with the right inserts... Which I don't.

What is it a front wheel drive? Replacing/repacking wheel bearings is a 20 minute job.

Yeah, front wheel drive make life complicated. Got to be done though because it's sending vibration back through the driveline and if it fails it could take out a tire, rim, hub, CV joint, halfshaft, or even the transmission. That could be a spendy event.

Funny you should mention front hubs.
Spent most of the day replacing a front drive axle on my sons '93 Toyota 4x PU.
It has just short of 300k on it and the hubs seem OK for now.
There is a retired Japanese engineer enjoying his sake and laughing his ass off whenever some foreigners discover that the front axles are about a 1/2 inch too long to just come out and go back in.
Got it done, the other one tomorrow.
Otherwise, it is easy to see why there are x billion of them still around.

Half inch too long to come out and go back in? I don't follow that.

But if your boss at Toyota questions it, tell him it's a feature, grab your Sake, and retire.

The axle has a flange on the front diff and a long splined shaft in the hub.
The problem is to get enough slack to work it out of the A-arms past the sway bar and the shock mount.
Manuals and online tutorials have come up with about 6 ways to try it, some requiring re-alignment, cutting the sway bar and worse.
We totally trashed the old one removing it, but the new one slipped right in. I'll reveal our technique for a negotiated fee.
We also encountered "cone washers," a new one on me after 60 years of wrenching.

Cone washers, had to Google them. That's just pure evil, it took a sick mind to foist that on mechanics techs anywhere Toyota goes.

I think the Arfons Brothers snatched up a lot of them.

A 62 foot blade gets the job done. I suspect it's for pulling rather than pushing.
