      as described. of course, only time will tell if it's a good bearing, but Moog has been a good brand of parts for years. I like Advanced Auto's order online, pick up in store and it saves money.

        Comments about MOOG Hub Assemblies Front Wheel Hub Assembly:

        Used on '09 Toyota Tacoma 4x4-front right wheel bearing. OEM quality, NSK bearing Made in Japan. MOOG driveline/suspension parts are awesome!
        Make sure you get the inner AND outer bearing seals (National #710573 and #710477) as well. The seals are the real problem, allowing water to get into the bearing rollers and leading to premature bearing failure. MOOG and National are a company that I have come to trust being an auto mechanic. And AdvanceAuto had a great deal if you order online-you can save some $$ and pick it up at the store at your convenience!

            I shopped online through Advances web site and got a great deal. Just ordered the part from my local store, paid for it online and picked it up the next day. Saved 40% through an online deal. Bearing performed as designed up to this point. Got a local auto place to press it in. You will need the special tool to remove the nut holding the bearing onto the hub. Order ahead of time and save some bucks. No body in my area had it.

                Comments about MOOG Hub Assemblies Front Wheel Hub Assembly:

                Installed in a 2003 4runner. Shop informed me the product was slightly larger than the OEM wheel bearing, and when pressed in with PROPER tolerence the bearing would not correctly rotate without excessive friction/noise/wear. The shop was absolutley correct, had to space it .02" further out to rotate by hand, however after about 10 days the product is failing with extremly excessive and tell tail screaching. The warrenty on the product is almost useless, the price to remove the hub assembly and get the bearing pressed out, have a second car to drive to the store and return this product, press the new bearing in, and reinstall on the vehicle takes so long it's not cost effective, unless your time has no value

                    • Q:

                      In the description, it says that I need 2 of these wheel bearings. Does it mean one for each side or does it mean 2 just for one side. I did not know if there was an inner and outer bearing.

                        Good question, Don! You'll need two of these wheel bearing and hub assemblies #515040 to complete both front wheels.

                    • Q:

                      I have a 2007 Toyota 4runner. I have humming noise that comes from Driver Front side and worsens as I accelerate. It goes away when I turn the wheel to the right. When I jack up the Driver side front there is a little bit of play in tire when pulled on at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock positions on tire. I believe I need a new hub assembly. Does this require any special tools? Can you describe to me what it means when people say it needs to be pressed?

                        Hi Jason, happy to help you with that question. If you are getting play when moving the tire in the 12 and 6 o’clock position I would also recommend having a look at your ball joints in addition to your wheel bearing. Pressing is when a shop will take the hub and use a hydraulic press to squeeze out the bearing and seals, replace them and then squeeze them back into the hub assembly.

                        Hello Stacy! Yes, this bearing will need to be pressed into the hub. There are a few ways to do this, but a floor or bench press is usually used. As for installation process, I would recommend part number: 92079. The Haynes repair manual is a great resource for auto repair.

                        Hi Binny, glad to assist you! The front wheel hub assembly torques specifications for Toyota Tacoma are caliper mount bolts are 74 ft/lbs, driveshaft axle nut is 177 ft/lbs, hub and bearing mounting bolts are 133 ft/lbs. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
