Default Front wheel bearing life span

Guess I can't complain, if these are the original ones.
367,000 miles & left front wheel bearing started squalling last night coming home.
That was a fun project for my day off in the 90 heat...

Wondering if I should go ahead & order the other one at such miles. Had to go ahead & get this one where I could.
Is it common for both to go near same mileage, or is it totally random?

Anybody had the experience?

Thats pretty good!! We always change em in sets on our stuff. There seems to be no rhyme or reason for how long they last. I'd buy one and just keep it in the truck, maybe it will never be needed

Yeah, I'm a little inclined to go ahead & change the other one when I get a minute, specially at that mileage & putting 300-600 miles a day on it.
Peace of mind 200 mi from home, in the dark.
The 'Local chain type auto parts store's was $169.

Lots of whoopin' & a heat wrench to get that sucker off tho.

Yup, "that Peace of mind 200 mi from home, in the dark." is surely a comfort.

I always change mine in pairs. A good hub puller makes that job a heck of a lot easier, along with no-seize on reassembly.

Do they still require hammer persuasion?
