Agreed... Timken or Moog bearings as well are good quality

I opted for Timken, heard good things about Timken and SKF, but mixed reviews on Moog (Moog is typically good but maybe their Wbody hubs are not great?).

Would probably buy any of the three over factory, though.

I can't speak for everyone. I replaced just one and the others are all fine: the guy at the parts supplier agreed that I didn't need to do both at the same time, whatever you consider his word to be worth Laughing

Well, you're probably looking at 200+ per hub, installed if you go for Timkens. I wouldn't get too wild on repairs, given that our cars are over a decade old.

When doing it myself, I replaced in pairs. When I paid someone else to do it, I only had the bad one replaced.

I couldn't even find a shop that would install Timkens for me let alone for 200 bucks. I was getting quoted between 400 and 600 bucks for a hub repair. The cheap end was using National hubs and the top end was for an OEM installed at the dealer.

I did mine a couple weeks back. DS was a breeze, the PS was a PIA. The 1/2 shaft was froze to the hub. It took heat & BFH to get them apart. I went with the Timkens also. I also replace them in pairs ( however I think thats OCD on my part Smile )

The dealers here won't install non-OEM parts, but I had a local shop install my Timken for 80 bucks. I of course overpaid for the Timken since I live in Canada, but I could have bought one elsewhere for a bit less if I looked around.

The dealer was substantially more than I paid both for parts and for labor.
