I used timken on both of mine, worked great. I used autozone online and got 20 percent off and free shipping. Soak the living hell out of the nut.

Timken I feel are better than Moog. Wife works for Moog and they're having more parts made overseas. Not saying Timken isn't, but from what my mechanic friends have seen, Moog is not as good as they used to be.

I'm really happy with my new Timken unit bearings, bought them from rockauto.com and got a great deal.

I ended up putting two Moog in a month or so ago, got a 20% off Advance Auto coupon so they were less than $90 each. One said made in USA the other made in China....Anyway, so far so good. Just disappointed to see Moog sending stuff over here from China plants. Not even sure if all Timkens are made in USA anymore either.
