    Can anyone tell me at what mileage their front wheel bearings failed? Got a big trip coming up and was wondering if I should change them. Thanks

    Wheel bearings don't necessarily fail with tons of miles... They do fail new and old.

    How many miles are on your truck? How far or how long is your trip.

    Unless you hear any wheel bearing noise - you should not have any problems.

    Obviously, before and during your trip - check all fluids, keep tire pressure at rated psi. Always check tires and engine oil when cold. Transmission most want it checked hot and prob running and in neutral. Look on the trans dip stick, It'll tell you.

    Thanks, right now I have 110,000 miles and will be putting on about 6,000 miles on the trip.

    I agree, run them as is if no problems evident now. No guarantees when they may fail but generally they are a run until they are done type part and you should have plenty of margins for a 6K mile road trip if they are good and tight now.

    You will know... If you want the peace of mind, get the wheel off the ground and push/pull at 12 and 6 oclock and 3 and 9 to see if there is any play.

    Just to add to Traxx's post above,put your floorjack or whatever jack you have under the lower A arm and then use a prybar to pry the tire up and down,to check for up/down movement at your ball joints. If you don't have a jack,one of these little 12V guys are nice to have.There's cheaper 3 ton versions,as this one is rated for 5 ton and includes an impact wrench.
