I've got some on my Monte Carlo. They are the only real option for replacing wheel hubs, unless you want to spend several hundred per hub for an OEM replacement.

I've got less than 5k on them, but they work just fine. I did a bunch of research when I needed them and came to the conclusion that it was the best option available. The most important thing is to make sure you torque down the axle nut properly. If you don't you can ruin a hub in short order.

Techcnically they are one time use only and odds are you going to trash at least one of them when trying to get them out. I picked up six for something like 20 bucks, well worth it to not worry about anything.

Hub to knuckle bolts? I still have the bags sitting on my work bench at home. I can post up a part number tonight if you want.

I installed the Timkens on both front hubs. Approx. 15,000 miles and no problems.

Regarding the bolts, per ZSPOT, the new number is 11570580 (GM apparently changed the part # recently).

Got a bit over a year and a half on my Timkens (2 fronts). No issues thus far, and I don't expect any either. I didn't have any trouble w/the hub bolts either.
