Front wheel bearing question

Non Hot Rod related,neighbor has a 79 Chevy 4 wheel drive p/u. Local tire shop told him front bearings needed packing. I thought they were lubed from the front wheel drive differential. It does have "Warren "hubs. Thanks in advance.

Most of them have two sets of bearings like any other front hub...these need to be packed...also there is a set of needle type caged roller bearings behind the hub that need a little wheel bearing grease...you have to remove the spindle to get to those. It would be good if he could get a Chiltons manual for his truck to help him with this project.

...and you'll need the special 4x4 socket with the 4 tangs to remove the nuts that hold the bearing in. Auto parts stores stock them.
