Front wheel bearing help.

I need both front wheel bearings, was wondering if there was one brand better than others, and where I can get a good price.

Found "National" brand at oriellys, for $117. The cheap one is for $106. I used to install national bearing in semi's and never had a problem, didn't know about a jeep.

Buy the Nationals. The cheaper ones are made in China. Nuff said.

If you can wait a short while, check http://www.rockauto.com or http://www.partstrain.com

They have several brands available including BCA/National, Timken, Crown and generic, I went Timken the most recent time around & have no complaints so far. Got 'em for roughly $90 each shipped, about $40 less a side than the local places.

(last time I checked rockauto was cheaper on the early TJ hub/bearings while partstrain was cheaper on the later models, so check both for your application)

I clicked the link in your signature and found it to be anti-climactic.

Well, yeah... it clearly says not to.
It's currently parked while I decide what to do with it now that Google ads decided they didn't want to run ads on that particular domain anymore...
