front wheel bearing hub assembly

Ok so I guess I'm going to have to change the front hub assembly. I suppose I could just change the bearings but I wanted to go with my dealers recommendation and change the entire assembly. Anyone have any tips for me before I start?

03 E500 and Corvette
1) the seal has the magnets for the ABS system don't substitute
2) The bearing has a chamfer on the inner side and don't substitute, over counter bearings won't have chamfer which will result in bearing not seating and failing
3) Buy OEM part and lubricant.

Very smart idea---just make sure you have the correct hub pulling/inserting tools and don't pound the S out of the assembly!!

Well the part came in and I completed the job in about an hour and a half. It's suprisingly not all that difficult to do. I will say 2 things: unplug the SBC (it's a fairly easy process.) and insure you plug in the brake pad sensors correctly once you're finished. I did not get it plugged in correctly and once I started the car to reseat the brake pads; the car went crazy. That all being said; I appreciate all the help everyone on the forum has given me.
