    Nope. It's too bad somebody doesn't come up with a setup like you can now get for a super duty. Apparently on those you can now get a setup that replaces the integrated flange/bearing/pressed in hub with a regular setup with greaseable tapered tapered roller bearings and manual hubs. But I've used SKF bearings on both the tacomas I've replaced them on. The last set I changed had about 30k on them when I sold the truck and it was still whisper quiet. I would suggest staying away from GMB brand. I work in the Euro parts business and I've seen lots of them fail prematurely. I can't imagine they have different standards for Japanese vehicles than they do European ones.
