Should both front wheel bearings be replaced at the same time?
Based on this line of thinking, it would make sense to recommend replacing both wheel bearing hubs at the same time even though only one has obviously failed. As long as the other wheel bearing is not making noise and play is still within specifications, it should remain in service.
What does a wheel bearing going bad sound like?
Squealing & Growling The classic sounds of a bad wheel bearing are cyclic chirping, squealing and/or growling noise. You can also tell that the sound is related to wheel bearings if it changes in proportion to vehicle speed. The sound can get worse with every turn, or it can disappear momentarily.

How do you change wheel bearings on a Toyota Tundra?
On vehicles where the wheel bearing is pressed into a cavity within the steering knuckle, the steering knuckle must be removed from the vehicle in order to press out the old bearing and press in the new bearing. On some vehicles, the wheel bearing is pressed onto an axle shaft and thus the axle must be extracted from the axle carrier.
