    Default 03 Yukon Front Wheel Hub

    I need to replace the drivers front wheel hub as the bearing is shot.
    Passenger side is fine...
    Here is my stupid question:
    I was going to install a Timkin wheel hub rather than GM. As the wheel sensors are integrated in the hubs, can the mismatch of hubs cause an issue with Stabilitrack or ABS?
    Am i over thinking this?

    You are over thinking it. The timkin hub's new abs sensor will be within specs for the abs system and everything will be fine. People change just one hub all the time. You might be surprised when you get the old one off, it may have timken bearings in it.

    No problem. Let use know if you have any issues with the install. It should be pretty straight forward.
