Wheel Bearings - Rough Ride on 2000 Ford Explorer

I'm told that I need to replace all wheel bearings - how much would be reasonable to pay? Will this cure the rough ride? Also does anyone else have problems with getting clear reception on radio?

Replacing the wheel bearings will probably not solve a rough ride. I recently replaced the wheel bearings on my brother in law's 2000 Explorer, they made a slight growling sound on turns. The front wheel bearings are part of the hub and are about $140 to $260 (depending on dealer or aftermarket) a side from the dealer and about an .9 hour each side to install. Rear wheel bearings are about $30 a side and and take about 1.3 to 1.5 hours total to replace both sides.
Shock absorbers have a greater effect on the way a vehicle rides.

The bearing replacement will not cure the rough idle. Is your Ford 4wd? This makes a big difference in the cost of the bearing work. I am not sure why the bearings are the cause of the rough ride. Could you explain? The antenna should be inspected for any reception problems.
Rough RIDE not Rough idle. I will check the antennae. It is AWD
