    I ordered a pair of MOOG 515040 wheel bearings and this is what I got.
    Bearing #1 no markings that I could find.

    What do you guys think, are these good to mount or is there something fishy with these bearings and I should return them?

    Those look like the real deal you just might need to repack them with real grease, some of the good stuff. The plastic thingy on the inside keeps them together. Take your old hubs off and you will have to take them and the new bearing to a machine shop to press the old bearing out and press the new one's in. They also have an adjustment ring nut that get's torqued to like 220 footpounds. Been there done that, read my post I put last year when I did my front bearings it has a few pictures in there. Good luck man

    emailed the seller and he said they aren't moog bearings, they are oe replacement, whatever that means. That's what I get for buying bearings off ebay!! ugh! $20 down the toilet!

    I wouldn't go jumping ship just yet those should work good for you. I also bought mine off ebay from a company that manufactures nothing but bearings, aftermarket stuff and they worked pretty good. I think even toyota dealer will sell you something just like what you have there and charge you a whole lot more then 20 bucks a piece guarantee. Call your local toyo dealer parts department and have them show you a bearing for your truck and then compare what u got there to it, I bet It'll be pretty much the same. good luck man oe- means original manufactured equipment....... usually means oem

    I returned them the ebay seller was nice and even refunded the shipping.
    Word around here is that these are rejects from the factory that's why they are cheap and why they don't have proper ID #s.
    Ordering the real deal from rockauto.
