    Kinda like that, yeah. It gets the bearings filled properly, which is the most important part. These bearings, if not pressed properly, will allow some of the grease to get pressed out and this results in bearing failure shortly down the road.

    Congrats on putting this together. Hope these are available when I need them for my 13. I have heard that the Timken bearings are no longer made in the US. They used to be made in Canton Ohio. Thought all that portion of Timken manufacturing was sent to China?

    148k on stock prerunner bearings and bought brand new napa hub assemblies. If I had seen this two weeks ago I would have ordered since I dont have a press and I still dont have one seal for it.

    sub'd..may need this in later life.

    Haha. Actually my shop is Marion Bumper2Bumper Automotive. We are located in Marion, Alabama.

    You are correct that Timken bearings are no longer made in the US. That is why I also offer in the opening post the option to go with National Bearing Company, which is still made in the US, for those who prefer American made on as much as possible.

    Sub'd, though I hope as I am only at 1,500 miles on the clock, the bearings won't be going out just yet :)
