I put in some used front hubs earlier this year, and within a few months they were both loose. 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.
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.

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 too...my 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
(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 time...so it was a good day.
