The hub assembly looks like it is built solid. Make sure you read the small print and select the right one for your application.

Soak the hub bolts with penetrating oil.
Loosen the axle nut.
Remove the lug nuts and wheel.
Remove the caliper and roter.
Disconnect the anti-lock sensor under the hood.
Press the axle partially from the hub to allow clearance for removing the 3 hub bolts.
Remove the hub bolts (mine were bears).
Install new hub and put things back together.

Not too difficult except for the really tight hub bolts.

Will NOT fit a 2002 Ford explorer

Will not fit a 2002 Ford Explorer. This is a larger hub bearing. It will fit an older Explorer 1998 or so.

        This product drastically improved my vehicle's performance. The ride is so smooth and reliable. There is a noticeable difference in driving with this product on my vehicle. This product costs more than the cheap stuff but is worth the extra money for the superior design and quality. When you open the box its like Christmas for your wheels.

                          With reference to your inquiry on the Moog Front Wheel Hub Assembly -part# 515052, you can just replace one side hub assembly on your 2002 Ford Explorer if the other side is good. However, it is better to check if there is any signs of bad symptoms on the other side wheel hub in order to avoid intermittence.

                          Do a search on YouTube for videos on how to replace front wheel bearing hub assembly. From what I've watched, it appears to be any where between 2-4 hours in the driveway. . . Easier and quicker on a lift with air tools, but plenty do-able in the driveway too.
