I need a hip replacement, however, I am allergic to all the metals.
Are there any suggestions as to different types of replacements?

You need to address this issue with your surgeon. I have had both hips replaced, but I don't have an allergy problem. Your Dr. will be able to help help you with this.

There is a new product made by Smith and Nephew called oxinium, but that is just for the ball portion. Are you allergic to titanium too (which is what the stem and cup are usually made of). Also you could have a ceramic head with plastic or ceramic liner.
