Dear Z Forum,
I'm about to replace my front brakes because they are worn but while I'm in there I plan on doing the front hubs. I'm doing the hubs because I've had the traction control turn off and on while driving and it sounds like from other posters that this might be the fix. So my question is other than front hub assemblies, pads and rotors is there anything else that needs replacing while I am in there? Should I replace the speed sensor (not sure what this is but it found it on the assembly diagram). Thank you for the all feed back....my truck is a 2006 Z Tahoe with about 140K miles.
Thank you,
-Andrew

Andrew - Good news! If what you are referring to as a speed sensor is the anti-lock brake sensor, you're in luck. A new hub comes with a new sensor! thumbsup.png

Make sure you have all the tools before you start, seems like a no brainier I know but I have been burned a few time by stuff you don't think about.. like a socket for the axle nut (which I believe is a 36mm for our trucks). Also might not be a bad idea to look at everything else while you your in there and planning to pull it all apart anyways. Ball joints, Tie rod end links and CV's come to mind.

Thanks guys, A couple of follow-up questions regarding hub/bearing replacement:

Did you use a puller to get the hub off?

Did you replace the O ring or leave it?

Some manuals say to replace the main axle bolt (don't hear many doing this).

Thank you,
-Andrew

One other thing I didn't see mentioned. Sometimes the 3 bolts holding the hub on get 'buggered' up, especially if your vehicle was exposed to salt. Might not be a bad idea to have a spare or three available. thumbsup.png
