Re: Old van and newer axle, bad wheel bearing. What to do?
I kinda picked out Pacific Auto because of the type of work they do. They look a lot like our local machine shop in Corvallis, Bob Forrest. Those shops that do both engines and ag work tend to be pretty good, and will be able to setup quickly for that kind of milling. Not all machine shops happen to have a proper rotary index at their disposal. Its possible to get it right without out, but its also more likely to by slightly off.
One big thing to watch out for....
Ford used a lot of different hubs, especially on the '99 MY axles. There's 5 or 6 different P/Ns and they are NOT all interchangeable. If you happen to have a Canadian axle, that hub is almost $500, which is double the price of the non-canadian hubs!
So... You probably won't be able to just stop and NAPA and order one on a whim. You will most likely have to bring the old one in to match it.
