yep ur right the new edges have assemblies and can not be rebuilt, but they are way less expensive than GM hubs. The Timken hub is cheaper then most low quality gm hubs, it's like $60

I found new assemblies costing anywhere from $60-$120. Does it matter which brand I get?

OEM replacement is good(Motorcraft), nothing remanufactured. I forget the name of my hubs lemme look it up real quick like

EDIT
I cant find the receipt but the hub/bearing assembly is something you dont want to skimp on. Either OEM replacement or like-kind-quality parts.

Well, I think I was wrong about the problem.

My buddy and I were under the hood and both think that the squeak is coming from the alternator. He specifically said that it sounds like the pulley is probably worn out.

I have two questions:

-Can I replace the pulley?
-Do I go to the junkyard for a alternator?

Any help would be appreciated.

before you go replacing it, take the belt off the car and start it. if squeak is gone then look for the problem. with the pulley yes they can be replaced but not with hand tools. and the pulley is just a metal piece is doesn't wear out. the alternator drive shaft can get bent though and to answer the question of junkyard alt. NO! never get a junkyard alt get a "reman" from a auto parts store.

I almost don't trust remans...working at a parts store, I use to see a lot come back, but its gotten better lately. And +1000 to taking the belt off first..when I had a speed related squeak, it was the cam position sensor

i dont see how turning the steering wheel could provoke an alternator squeak? are you sure its in the engine bay? i dont think i understand fully what kind of squeak your getting but when my car was doing something like that it was my ball joint. even after i replaced it, the grease needed to work its way in so it was still squeaking for a few days or so. does it squeak over bumps also?

Had same problem on mine 2001 Convertible. My mechanic raised on the lift, in some way filled the tie rod ends with WD40 and a lot of rust and dirt came out, then greased. Squeaking now seems gone away. He said old tie rods was made by bronze and had a greasing point. New one are not serviceable and needs to be replaced.
