    I am buying new front wheel bearings and have found some great prices online but just trying to get some input on which ones to get. I found a set on ebay for $78 brand new but haven't heard of the brand and then I found some timken's at rockauto online for $145 shipped and just wondering if it is really worth the difference in prices. Here are the links for each or let me know if you have another better/ cheaper resource.

    I did the search and looks like they are still full price at rock auto. Anyone think it is worth double the money for the timken bearings? Or if someone wants to check again on rock auto maybe I did something wrong.

    I did my front right bearing two weeks ago and bought the bearing assembly and seal from NAPA. So far so good $138.00 total.

    That was just for one though and I found them for much cheaper online so just trying to see if it is worth the ebay ones or pay for timkens since they really don't last forever anyway

    I've always bought OEM or Timken. I've never had any problems with Timken bearings. I have them on the rear axle right now. I just changed the original ones out a couple months ago.
