One of many reviews I have received: (spelling mistakes left intact)
|Hello Bill, just wanted to thank you for the excellent product that arrived in the mail yesterday. The hubs and bearings look beautiful and I'm not just saying that ........ All in all the unit you sent me looks like a professional had put together and the parts look brand new, all the bolts in the hub were in the hub and it was also packed better with filler and not just plastic wrap and paper for the hubs to move around in the box and tear it open. I had to let you know these things and would very much like to put it out on the forum ..... I just want to thank you for a great set of hub assemblys, .... you do put out a superiour product and yours is the name I will give when asked about hubs or anything else you are selling, I got my money's worth. Thank You Bill.|
I've been working for a while now with Toyota, Timken, National, and Dorman. We all know the front wheel bearings are a common failure for both the Pre-runner, AND the 4X4 (ESPECIALLY the 4X4!) and trying to find a quality replacement is a pain. Then you have to get the parts together, drive to a shop, pay anywhere from $25-$50, and PRAY that the shop doesn't break something in the process!
Here is what you will get:
For the 4X4 Tacoma:
- KOYO brand bearing (The highest quality for the Tacoma!)
- Dorman wheel hub
- Timken bearing seal
- Toyota bearing installation bolts
- Toyota o-ring seal
These will fit the following 4 wheel drive vehicles:
2005 - 2014 Toyota Tacoma
2003 - 2014 Toyota 4runner
2007 - 2014 FJ Cruiser
2003 - 2009 Lexus GX470
2010 - 2014 Lexus GX460
For the Pre-runner:
- National brand bearing (Timken, GMB, or Koyo available)
- FACTORY Toyota wheel hub
- FACTORY Toyota hub nut
- Timken bearing seal
- Toyota Bearing installation bolts
These will fit the following 2 wheel drive vehicles:
2005 - 2014 Tacoma Prerunners
2003 - 2014 Toyota 4Runner
2007 - 2014 FJ Cruiser
2003 - 2009 Lexus GX470 (2wd)
2010 - 2014 Lexus GX460 (2wd)
All assemblies are built in a fully ASE certified shop, by ME, an ASE certified Master Technician, using a 20 ton shop press. I build these units myself. Not someone else.
WHY are the factory and aftermarket bearings failing so often?
During manufacturing the factory bearings are only lasting on average of 60k miles. This is not acceptable by any means. They are being built with inferior quality parts, and not by parts that can handle the heavy demand on today's Toyota trucks. Aftermarket bearings are in many cases the same. I have been building and installing these assemblies since March of 2011 at my shop in Marion, Alabama. I started selling them here near the end of July, 2013. This means I have been building these units for almost 2 years now. One thing that I have learned is that in manufacturing of ALL aftermarket bearings, there is insufficient lubrication. The Koyo bearing EVERYONE gets are really no different. They have a minimal amount of bearing grease in them. I take the already great Koyo bearing and add an additional amount of quality high pressure, high temperature bearing grease. This extends the life of my bearing assemblies. I improve an already great bearing. Each assembly is tested in my shop for smoothness of movement, bearing side tension, and free-play. This assures you that you get the absolute BEST assemblies available. I stand behind all of my units 100%.
Below you can see photos of the parts, and assemblies!
Above you will see the Toyota o-ring, Timken bearing seal, Toyota hub bolts, and the National hub bearing assemblies.
Also you can see the Dorman hub for the 4X4 setup, as well as the Toyota hub for the 4X2 setup.

Here is the proper way to press these units together.
Some people place the hub and bearing assembly directly on the lower plate. This is not the correct way as it applies force to the bearings themselves on the inside. This can cause chipping of the bearings or races, resulting in premature bearing failure. By using a press sleeve underneath the assembly, and directly on the center bearing race it forces the pressure only on the inner races of the bearings, pressing the two races together, and pressing the wheel hub into place. This applies NO pressure to the bearing itself. How can you tell? Check out this short video I made that demonstrates this.
The process will include:
- Proper full greasing of the new bearing (NOBODY else does this)
- installation of bearing seal
- installation of mounting nuts
- pressing of wheel hub into bearing
- installation of hub backing nut and torque to spec.
I offer a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty (Whichever comes first) This is a personal warranty by ME and my company. Not any third party!
Please photograph your odometer when you install the hubs.
Again these are professionally built units, assembled by an ASE certified master technician (ASE identification number ASE-1923-5640) and are assembled in an ASE certified automotive repair shop.
