    Hello everyone,

    Newbie here. I need to replace my left front wheel bearing as it is making quite a bit of noise. After few hours of googling it seems like the best way to go about it for a do-it-yourselfer as myself is to replace the entire hub assembly. The Dorman hub and Koyo bearings seem to be the best.

    I found these on ebay:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/2003-2015-...epid=1039595337&hash=item25b42a9605:rk:1:pf:0

    The price is very good, but I'm worrying about counterfeit Koyo bearings after reading this article:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads...es-vs-jersey-built-hubs.579160/#post-19209762

    Has anybody use these?

    Which hub and bearing assemblies do you recommend?

    OEM hubs are definitely an option, but from what I can see they do not come with the bearings installed. I don't have a press to do the job.
