    I looked around on the forum & decided to go with Timken front bearings. The Koyo were about 30% more than Timken on Auto Parts Warehouse & too pricey.

    When the bearings came I opened the package to check them out. The boxes said Timken BM500007. Looked at the bearing assembly & the bearings are Koyo! Same bearings for 30% discount! Yeah baby!

    These are sealed bearings. Whats the deal on packing them with grease???
