hubs

Ok about a year ago I bought some cheap (I know.....stupid) front wheel hub assembly's and they are working fine but they are chrome unlike the stock ford ones and the have what I believe is surface rust showing. All I want out of this is what are some good brands that will last without this issue and how are the new ford ones? Going to start saving so any help would be nice.

I am looking for the wheel bearing/hub assembly.....the whole thing. Onces that are like 400 a peice from ford. Have looked into timken, warn and dyna trac.......just need some insight or product review on them. Thanks for the replys. Another thing is I have a project coming up (hopefully within a year) of going to a dually, is their a difference between drw and srw front hubs?

they both run the Dana super 60 ball joint version just one uses a spacer

Mrvideo called it but those are not called HUBS by the way they are called " unit bearings".. common mistake ,,

Dyna trac replaces the whole unit bearing with individual bearings and replacement locking 4x4 hubs for a lot of $$

I don't see how you have rust on a unit bearing ?
Timken makes them for ford and those are the best for stock and available at Autozone

Idk but my stock ones had 150K on them and no signs of rust.....they were a black color and these are chrome color.....with signs of surface rust and they are just over a year old I believe. Guess i'm going to look at timkens.....just want a black color.
