Default Bad wheel bearings

Ok I believe my wheel bearing in the front are going out, squeaking,
the left side will move back and forth about a 1/4".
So how much difficulty is there in changing them out.
and anybody know the best place to get them.

Thanks

I have had 3 hub bearings go out on me in 47,000 miles. I have a 4x4. If you are mechanically inclined and have a good assortment of tools. It's not that bad of a job.I have the hub bearing with the abs senser.I bought mine ofEbay for $110.00. Here is a link from the seller I usedfor the hub bearing with no senser.
Good Luck.

Default RE: Bad wheel bearings

Yeah I found this too..

2006 DODGE RAM 1500
Manufactured between: 11/07/2005 and 04/27/2006
Defect: on certain pickup trucks, the front wheel bearing may have received an insufficient quantity of grease during the manufacturing process.
Consequence: this could result in bearing degradation, and if subsequent noise and vibration are ignored, could result in hub assembly separation. this may result in a loss of vehicle control and cause a crash without warning.
Action: dealers will replace the front hub and bearing units. the recall began on february 26, 2007. owners may contact daimlerchrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
Recall Date: 02/12/2007

My MFR Date on the door says 2-06, so I should be good..
Just got to call a dealer now.
Thanks guys
