One hub assemble is $180 bucks. If you got $400 bucks laying around to swap parts go for it. Otherwise most replace them one at a time.

just replace the bad one however, remember that noise can and will travel, which could lead you to believe that the good side is actually bad! If u can understand that!! Basically, noise can and will transfer from one side to the other side of your truck very easily, so be prepared to put the hub on one side and go for a test drive afterwards and still hear the noise, problably replaced the wrong one! Bottom of the line, be ready to remove and replace the same hub bearing twice!!

If you can get the truck in the air, it's very easy to tell which side needs replaced by rotating the tire with your hand. Don't go by the sound. The side that needs replaced will feel rough as you spin the tire. Just have some common sense and you shouldn't be replacing anything twice.

most bearings need to have a load on it to tell if its bad or not, unless its just loose. But you cant always tell by spinning the tire in air which one it is!
