    For those looking for 2WD Blazer Hubs

    Not a terrible price at $60, but shipping is a bit much.

    http://www.rockauto.com has them for under $60 and shipping is reasonable. I searched under 2000 Blazer 2wd, which is what I have.

    haha IMO Rockauto and reasonable shipping don't go together. Every time I price anything out there I end up going elsewhere once they give me the shipping estimate.

    The $60 Rockauto hub is also an off brand aftermarket hub which are not known to last very long. Finding a New in Box OEM at the same price point is a much better deal, which is what the auction I shared has. It is not my auction, but I know there are others on this forum who are looking to pick up hubs for the Blazer spindle swap or the like.

    Shipping is high, but fwiw thats about what i paid on shipping for the two oem hubs ive bought. They are pretty heavy, and thats a pretty good price since they are getting harder to find cheap

    It will depend on your personal preferences and situation. The packed bearings are cheaper and not too difficult to replace, but rotors and/or upgrading rotors is more expensive. The sealed hubs are more expensive and the OEM parts are becoming harder to find. Delphi still produces them to OEM spec, but those are much more expensive. They are a breeze to replace, though. The sealed hubs are part of the dual piston setup on the front of the Blazers, so to do the swap, spindles and brakes are also needed. Drop spindles for the Blazers are also more expensive and rare too.

    I personally run the sealed hubs on both my 2000 Blazer and my 1991 S10 primarily for the larger brakes. I've gotten good at finding cheap sealed hubs, so I'm not worried about that part of it.

    In short...

    Packed Bearings (S10)
    Cheaper
    Easier to Find/Buy
    Cheaper Drop Spindles

    Sealed Hubs (98+ Blazers)
    Bigger Brakes
    Extremely Easy to Replace

    Next year I plan on lifting or lowering the 02 havent desided. And was thinking anout switiching to the older bearings. which is better for each if those choices lifted and lowered.

    Couldn't tell you which is better really for lifting or lowering. Poor alignment, worn out bushings, etc. will certainly put more stress on both. All off those effects are generally increased when lifting or lowering a vehicle.

    I also will suggest that you don't switch in terms of brakes. If you go to the single piston calipers it will have a large effect on the braking system. They added the dual calipers to the Blazers because they weigh so much more than the trucks and older Blazers. For me that is a huge safety issue.
