Aftermarket wheel bearings?

Anybody have any idea if theres aftermarket support for wheel bearings out there? Of course the ones in my SD are going bad for obvious reasons. I just figured id see whats out there before throwing on some stockers that will just wear out in a few thousand miles.

Ive had good luck with Timken brand in the past. Grand Am's are notorious for eating wheel bearings after the first set. tried 5 different brands in a year and the timkens are the only thing that held up.

The car was sold 4 years and 90 000kms later and the timkens were still going strong.

Not Cheap, but it will be the last you'll have to buy

I second the Dynatrac kit, especially with the tires your running.

wow those dynatracs really hit the wallet hard but sure would solve the problem and for good. They may be a bit much for right now so i may try those timkins and save up for the dynatracs in the future. And would they work plain manual hubs since those are auto hubs?

Any other suggestions guys?

i have the cheap master pro ones in mine from orielly's but i am running close to stock tire on mine, but have over 6k or so on them since i bought them a few months ago.

those dynatrac ones are nice, i think spin-tech makes one to, but i heard mixed reviews on quality

Timken is who makes the bearings for Ford. Don't buy the knockoffs. If you daily drive, they more than likely won't last a year, two at best.

I would be really surprised if dynatrac or spin tech didn't use timkens in their hubs. When it comes to automotive tapered roller bearings, there really isn't anyone better.

More Information for PRO 29515020

I've run a pair of these in my wifes excursion and one on my rig... Excursion has over 100k on them, mine has close to 80k...

Pretty sure the other side is going out...

You can replace A LOT of wheel bearings before coming close to the Danatrac kit...

OP What did you end up doing? I'm curious about the spyntech kit, 600 off a dynatrac sounds tempting.

I had a wheel bearing & u-joint going out and bought a whole Dana 60 axle & got it installed an aligned for the price of the bearing, seal and u-joint..

In all seriousness if you have a Dana 50 I'd check your options like I did, tires 38"+ and the D50 don't play well together.. otherwise go with Timkin's until you can afford a Dynatrac kit.


Old thread... My bad.
