    Having done all my own replacements on my 4x4's, I've never done them on this truck (and any other 4x2 since never owned a 2wd till now). The out bearing comes right out, but is the inner bearing pressed in place or have a retaining clip/etc. I quickly pulled apart today before I left my shop just to see what was what. Bearings are being dropped tomorrow am. I can all kinds of info on 4x4's but not 4x2's.
    Thanks in advance

    All 2wd I've done are pressed. Clean the hub and make sure to measure how far in the bearing is pressed. Ussually just a hair past the seal depth. Usually the hub will have a nice clean ridge when you remove the bearing showing the depth, just make sure before you knock out the old one you get a measurement. Just my experience, hope this helps, Matt
