Timken is the only one that is proven to hold up well. You can get whatever you want, but expect to do the job again in a few months if you cheap out.

Timken are my first choiceas well as SKF as a second.

However, Installation can ruin the best made hubs out there.
Don't whack the hub face end with a hammer when putting the new one back into the housing. Smacking the hub section can cause a bearing ding on the race which will cause early failure.
Clean the mounting surface the new hub will slide into very well so that excessive force is not needed during reassembly process.

Dad use to say , "never force a part with a Ford Tool ( hammer ) when working on a Chevy. If find it necessary to do so, your doing it wrong. "

For what it's worth, we install primarily Moog bearings every year at my shop. Lifetime warranty. Seldom warranty one out.

Never had to warranty a Moog bearing in the 12 years I was in the business.

I tend to rank them from best to lesser SKF, Moog, and then Timken. Funny that's also how their price seems to go too. But all three seem to be good and are close in quality.

I've been hearing more and more positive feedback on the SKF bearings over the last few years. I'm guessing those are becoming another viable option over the cheapo stuff. I was also unaware that Moog made bearings for our cars. I'd imagine they are pretty pricey, but of the utmost quality like their other suspension stuff that I don't hesitate to buy.
