How do I go about replacing front wheel bearings on a 1990 runner ifs? My haynes only shows manual hubs and i've got auto locking. Spent the day out in the bush and hit a rut hard and now I've got a horrible clunk in the wheel.

Do I have to remove the entire hub assembly as shown, or is there a quick, get me by for a year type fix.

I would get a manual that has your auto hubs in it if this is your first time working on them...

It's not a hard job, but there are some finiky bits...

I found a link so I'll share it here. I started digging into it today and looks like the bearings are just fine, but instead looks like I blew out the lower balljoint on one-side. Sounds simple according to haynes.
