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.

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.

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.
