Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy
I have a 2001 Gmc Jimmy and was told that my wheel bearings on both side needs replacement. I've been doing some pricing with auto part stores but it seems that it only comes in a hub assembly. I need to know if I have to purchase the entire hub assembly or could I purchase just the wheel bearing by itself and get it installed. I was told by a mechanic that they have a machine to pop out old bearings and replace with new. Is this true?
Unfortunately your bearing assembly is a sealed unit and you have to purchase it as a complete part. they do have a way to change out the bearing at a shop, however the labor cost involved would most certainly be alot more than a replacement it's self. I have come across this problem many times and it's not as easy to switch them out as you have been told. i hope this helps. (note) to repalce them on your vehicle if you don't do the work yourself have a small shop do it not a dealer shop. the cost will be alot less. the labor time should be no more than 2 hrs. that is roughly about no more than 120- 150 dollars for the labor . if the place you take it to quotes you way more than that take it somewhere else... good luck please rate this

Some wheel bearings are pressed into the hub and are available separately. In your case, if no one stocks just the bearing, then you have to buy the hub assembly and have the entire thing changed out.
