    So I've told you about the rear wheel bearing issue I had back in February. Got it replaced...no issues, good.

    So now this past week I'm hearing the telltale death siren of another wheel bearing going to shit.
    This time drivers side rear.
    What the hell Toyota?
    A truck with a measly 140,000 miles on it from easy highway driving, isn't hauling CMU pallets or towing stock trailers up Pikes Peak has another one go out?
    What the hell are these bearings made of? Pot metal?

    Damn. That sucks Antonio. I wonder if a bad lot of bearings were installed.

    You do put the miles on. Grass doesn’t grow under your Tundra.

    The bearing I had replaced in February ( passenger side) was done by my local Toyota dealership so I assume these were Toyota original.
    Got an estimate from mom and pop shop near my office and they want $850.00 to do the drivers side rear.

    Could you perform this yourself? Not sure if you have the garage space or tools is why I ask. If you know someone with a press….

    I could probably do the job myself. I would need a press though. Getting this thing back together and making sure all the ABS, speed sensor..etc all work and not glitch out worries me. Above my pay grade.

    I think you underestimate your abilities sir. It’s not that bad of a job if you wanted to save some money. Not everyone has the time though either.

    Napa has the bearing hubs for $180-250.00.
    Toyota has them for over $450.00
    Why the large difference? OEM vs...?
