Yeah, I got into the same problem with my 35c on bearings and this thread helped me out in going with the 5707. As Polka said the 44a and 35c use the same bearings/seals. Even got into a cluster as seen below in finding an outer axle seal similar to the OE one. Ended up going with the Timken 8660S which seems to work fine.

I found after looking around ALL DAY the "national" 4857 wheel bearings seemed to have the best quality. I got them from O'Reilly's

I'm sure you mean 4857 axle seals. I like the lip on the front and as long as they don't have the big rubber piece on the back, like the Timken 4857 in the photo/link I posted, those should work.

Federal Mogul makes the National brands so they probably are good.

I have no idea what kind of weird Timken 4857 I bought from Autozone since the one in the below pic doesn't have a big closed-in rubber part on the back preventing it from going all the way in tight.
