Shimano road Freehub bodies

I have an older set of the Wh-7700 wheels. They're old with lots of wear, but they are still sturdy commuter/training wheels.

I think my freehub is on its way out. My question is, can I purchase a shimano compatible freehub body and replace it? Or does it have to be brand specific? Meaning if I ask for a Shimano freehub body designed for shimano wheels, will it fit. What other info will I need in order to insure I get the right part/

Thanks

According to this service document, the WH-7700 has a FH-WH77 freehub. Should be able to find one at the LBS by that model number. Might be best just to bring the freehub body in if not the whole wheel.

Don't know the quality of the WH77 freehub- but that is what the Service docs. say. Go to a shop that knows its products and they may come up with better alternatives.

..i just did a price check and retail for that item in Canada is $296. Wow... The part number is Y3A098010. Now, I'm not sure what these numbers mean but couldn't I just use an Ultegra 9spd hub body for a fraction of the cost ($80)? The part # differs by just one letter..Y3B098010.
