Good information! I'm going to order the wheel bearing tool set, some new bearings and give it a try. Kinda pissed that I just replaced the axle and the noise is still there.

Just a heads up for everyone usually the axles will make a sort of clicking sound while turning if its going bad. 99% of the time if your humming and nothings rubbing then its usually the wheel bearing

Will I need anything special to remove it and put it in? I hate paying some overweight sweaty man $60 and hour to do something I could do. Let me know. Thanks!
hey all you do is remove the brakes rotor and backing plate and hub nut then its the 4 bolts that surround the drive axle the heads are on the inside facing away from u all u do is remove those and pul it out (they pick up road grime dirt and debris inbetween 2 metal piecesof the housings it will be a fight trust me) replace with new one tightening bolts in correct order i don no if they come pre greassed or if u have 2 pack them ur self then just tighten then back in carefully

I'm not sure I understand correctly, but what you just wrote doesn't make much sense...

I've gone through 6-8(lost count by now) front bearings in the 250,000km I've had the car... (the ones currently on the car are from autopartsway.ca and one of them has been there for close to 100,000km so I'm hoping they'll last)

mcgarvey described it pretty much spot on... I've watched my mechanic do this every time and I wouldn't attempt it without proper equipment... just the pressing of the old bearing out and the pressing the new one in you need a press and proper size cylinders (to reach into the hub)


It usually costs me about 100$ total (~60$ for the bearing and ~40$ for the labour)

I like those brands, and have installed SKF and National on an ES.
Generally: SKF, National (Moog) or Timken. Model depends on your model of Lancer

So the ones I got from autopartsway.ca (http://www.autopartsway.ca/PartList..../pagenum1/tabS) seem to last a long time. My ex left with the Lancer and at that time both bearings had way over 100k km on them and still weren't making any noise. One of them must have even had over 150k km easy...

National / MOOG / SKF, or any equivalent still produced is fine, and in your price range... I guess the set includes bearing + wheel ub/studs ?

What are your choices?

ummm I have seen moog and duralast. The auto stores around me have stopped carrying brands like skf and timken. And my mechanic is pressing me to get it done now. I found some NAPA proformer bearings and hub assembly for 74 a piece..
