At 90tho miles my right front bearing just went. So I replaced both sides with SKF bearings.
Three Year Warranty.
Will report if I ever have a problem with them.

I have had SKF for two years now. About 30K miles. So far no problems.

I generally like the Moog bearings, but on my wife's car I have replaced the RF Moog twice; once for the sensor going bad, once for the sensor wire tearing out of the housing. I haven't used SKF for years but didn't have much problem with them

I usually go with MOOG or Timken bearings. GM uses Timken bearing in their OEM - at least in the Trailblazers, not sure about the Impalas but if GM uses Timken bearings you might as well replace it with a Timken or something very similar.

Replaced my front hubs with Timkens at 168k miles, now at 212k, no problems yet. (I probably just jinxed it.)
