Which wheel bearnings to buy?

Guys I got a quote from the dealer asking a lot of money for 2 wheel bearings. Would they get mad if I brought them my own 2 front wheel bearings? It's making a grumbling sound on the road and highway, as if it's stuck in a lower gear and does not want to shift higher. Is that what a dying wheel bearing sound like? It must have happened after I went over this nutty huge pothole..

At the same time my transmission over temp is flashing, but doubt it's related...

Can you help me choose which wheel bearings for a 2006 JEEP GC 4.7? Someone already recommended Timken.

PRO Part # 29513234 Front $76.64

VALUE PRO Part # 513234 Front $79.84

RAYBESTOS Part # 713234 Professional Grade Front $110.80

FAG Part # FW9234 Front (Only 2 Remaining) $115.17

MOOG/NATIONAL Part # 513234 Front $128.94

TIMKEN Part # HA590036 {Click Info Link for Alternate/OEM Part Numbers52089434AA, 52089434AB, 52089434AC, 52089434AD, 52089434AE} Front $128.94

SKF Part # BR930634 {#52089434AB, 52089434AC} Wheel Hub Assembly Front $168.55

Re: Which wheel bearnings to buy?

Haven't heard of most of the brands but Timken is top quality. Also, I would pick Timken over SKF.

Look up the manufacturer's wed site and pick the one that shows the highest C90 figure for the bearing. This is the bearing's Dynamic Load Rating. The higher the C90, the longer the bearing will last. C90 is load at which the bearing can be expected to fail after 90 million revolutions.

Re: Which wheel bearnings to buy?

I ordered the Timken, thanks guys.

Anyone know if these should be replaced at the dealership or any garage will do? How much time do you think these take to replace?

thx

A reputable garage is always better than a dealership unless you know the dealer to be particularly good. Also the dealer will not thank you for supplying your own bearings and deny all responsibility despite them possibly being better than original.
