    I just replaced one on my 2010. didn't need a hub puller or none of that crap. 32mm socket with breaker bar for axle nut and socket set for the 4 bolts that hold the hub on. had mine changed in 30 minutes

    Was it ever replaced before? Are you the first owner? If it was done once before, it would probably drop right out.

    I am at 53k and noticed a squealing / metal slinky like noise when I turn the steering wheel left - not every left turn, but I only hear the noise when I turn left. I thought it was way too early for a wheel bearing to go bad. Looks like I have a weekend project!

    SKF > Timken > OEM/Motorcraft. Those would be the three brands I'd buy.
