Rockauto.com

Timken brand is the OEM supplier and IMO the ONLY bearings you should ever run. My Timken's from Rockauto were about $150 a pop and you can get 5% discount codes to use when you order.

You never want to skimp on bearings....you get what you pay for.




Note: your post jumps around from saying hub and saying bearing.... what needs replacing?? 98-99's the hub and bearing are seperate. 00+ are combined hub/bearing assy's. My post only talks of the wheel bearings.



Sidenote: autozone doesn't offer a warranty on their duralast wheel bearings???

Search the forums and/or google for the 5% off discount code... gets it even cheaper too.
