    After inspecting my brakes I noticed some play in my front left wheel bearing. I plan on getting the hub and wheel bearing assembly together to simplify the process. Are there any aftermarket manufacturers that I should consider or avoid? Is it possible to get the hub and bearing assembly together OEM? The only way I've seen them is sold separate.

    I just had to replace the bearings on my Taco LF. I went ahead and purchased a new hub and bearing assembly from Blue Pit bearings. There were cheaper options like Dorman but after research I decided to spend a little more for the better brand.
    These came pressed together in one unit and it was a pretty easy DIY. Really the only issue I had was from corrosion.

    I wish there were more quality affordable options

    TImken doesn't make a hub & bearing assembly combo for the tundra. (not that I have found anyway)
