Good Replacement Wheel Bearing?

Well I recently replaced both front wheel bearings only to find that my bearing noise went away for two days and then back again. Just took it in for a repair shop to listen and both wheel bearings are shot. I bought them from AM-Autoparts on ebay and I do have new replacements coming but if they go bad again right away, whats a good brand and place to buy them from?

Re: Good Replacement Wheel Bearing?

I agree with jlode675 on Timken bearings. They have been around a long time and below is a link to the ones I purchased for my ride. Also if you go back and view some of the older threads on this subject, you will find more good information concerning torque specs, bolt sizes for the metric threads and ideas about the use of anti seeze grease and pullers to use rather than hammers or impact wrenches that can damage other parts.

The link is to a page which shows you several bearing hubs. I bought the Timken brand part number: Timken HA598679 Wheel Hub they cost around $70.00 a piece plus S & H.

Good Luck this time
