I put in some used front hubs earlier this year, and within a few months they were both loose. Confused Shoulda just gone with new ones the first time, grrr! This morning I started getting some growling from the LF hub whenever it wasnt under accel or braking. I went to replace them myself today, but it was just a bad day and I couldnt pop the balljoint and misplaced my breaker bar so I couldnt undo the knuckle bolts either. Rolling Eyes

Dont feel like delving into the hubs again, so I might just put it in a shop and let them do the hubs and tie rods while they're in there.

How much labor is normal for a hub replacement? The old parts book says 1 hour each.

I was quoted 400 to 600 bucks per hub (including the part) when I was thinking about having a shop take care of the one I'm having issues with now. So I guess I'd figure 200 to 400 bucks for labor...

My mechanic (pretty reasonably priced around here..and he's trusted family has been using him for a long time) quoted me at $525 to replace my hub.

I waited to do it until I got my axle ball joint was being a PITA too, I ended up just taking the entire knuckle off the strut and doing it that way. Even after getting an alignment it was still cheaper lol

hub- $110
(axle was around 70)
alignment was like 80
and case of beer lets say 15
saved over 200 bucks (not to mention the axle cost if I had them do it)

and I did front rotors and pads at the same it was a good day.
