On a 1998 Blazer you can replace the bearing Hub assembly yourself! You do not need any special tools. Being that on this model you replace the whole assembly which goes for less than $100.00 (after market with life time warranty) The assembly comes with the ABS sensor included. You DO NEED a 36 mm socket and a break bar to remove the axle nut, 18mm wrench, WD40 and time. You need to remove the caliper, the break pads, the rotor (disc) and then 3 screws that hold the bearing hub assembly, install everything back in reverse. You will not need to do front aligment, you are not touching anything related to the trainee such as tie rods, ball joints etc.

wheel bearings are not really a do it yourself project unfortunately, unless you have a hydraulic press. however there are step by step instructions on DIY if you are determined and have the special tools. The bearings can be taken to a machine shop where they can removed and replaced. The rest is not easy but it is possible.

The wheel bearing for the 1998 Chevy blazer is all one piece. Hub and bearing. No presses needed. unbolt, take out, put in new one.

2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive? It makes a difference.

If you are referring to the front bearings, you have to buy a complete hub assembly.

Call your local auto parts store. Front wheel bearings can go from $50 to $200 (plus labor) depending on manufacture.

yes.. To my knowledge the rear wheel bearings are lubricated with the differential gear lube as you drive.

Replacing a wheel bearing in your Chevrolet blazer will cost approximately $175 per bearing. You can save $125 by doing the work yourself.

It has 1 big hub bearing per side and you can not service them. It has factory sealed bearings. If there bad then you must replace the bearing.

WOW! Wish I could help you with this one but I didn't even know Chevy had rear bearings on rear wheel drive trucks.

User Avatar

If the truck is a 4 wheel drive, you can't repack the front wheel bearings. It has a sealed hub/bearing assembly that is not serviceable.
