Default Need to replace front wheel bearings and ball joint

Hi guys,

I have a 2005 Mustang GT, had it in for regular service this week and dealership told me I need to replace the left front wheel bearing and the right front lower ball joint. The gave me a cost which seems very high so I found a mechanic who will do side jobs, but before I call him trying to source parts I need for my car myself.

What parts do I need....do I need just the wheel bearings or do I need the complete wheel hub assembly which includes the bearings...and for the ball joint do I only need the ball joint itself or some other assembly.

If there are other recommended parts I should have replaced maybe you can shed some insight as rather haev it done know when he will have things torn apart.

Thanks for all the help!!!

Thanks guys going to start looking online for wheel bearings and ball joints only.

For the wheel bearings, is there and outer and inner required for each wheel?

Hey guys one more question, how do I know if my car is ABS or not? Reason I ask is I can get the front wheel hub assembly for ABS or without ABS?

FYI, can find wheel bearing only for the rear but every where I am looking online I can only find the hub bearing/seal kit and not the bearing itself.

I know the car has TCS (traction control system) but not sure about the ABS.

I could be wrong on this, but does the front wheel bearings on these cars not come as a sealed unit and all you have to do is unbolt the old one from the spindle and replace it with the new one. Just curious as I might be doing this myself shortly.

CMAN - makes sense as I am not able to find the bearing only for front only the hub/bearing/seal assembly.

As well do you know how to tell if the car has ABS or not? I do have TSC just not sure about ABS and when purchasing the hub assembly there is one for ABS and another without ABS.

the car has ABS, all of them do. It's a mandatory safety feature. For answers to questions like this, refer to your owners manual.

All GT's have 4 wheel abs, base V6's do not, the bearing is only serviced with the hub as a assy, ford part# 4R3Z-1104-AA and it retails for $138.10, Ford also states that you need to replace the hub nut with a new one ford part# F3LY-3B477-A, it retails for $16.48, and also a new grease cap ford part# F1VY-1N135-A retail $10.15, the lower ball joint is only serviced with the lower control arm, ford part# for the right side is 9R3Z-3078-B and it
retails for $276.48.
here are a couple of PDF files on replacing them out of the Ford shop manual.

and trust me, 1994/up all were hub and bearing assemblies, 1993 was the last year of the hub and rotors that had inner and outer bearings that were serviceable.
