Cherokee
Default Axle and Bearing Hub Assembly-bolts

I am going to order an Axle Bearing Hub Assembly for an 98' Jeep Grand Cherokee 5,9. I can't tell if it comes with the bolts that holds it to the steering knuckle.I think it's supposed to be three bolts.If it does'nt come with the assembly,then where can I find these bolts,and what are they called?
Thanks!

Why not reuse the original bolts?

when I replaced my hub assemblies my old rusted bolts chewed up the threads in the old hub assembly pretty good. I had a heck of a time finding them locally. Dealership had them at $8 each. I went to the junkyard and found 3 good ones for $1. I have a Dana 30 axle. Dont know what you have, but I would take one of the old bolts with you whenever you go shopping for new ones just to ensure you get the right length.

I snapped one right off when I replaced the drivers side hub on mine. Luckily the Ace hardware had the correct bolt.
