Duralast vs. National?

Need to replace axle bearing/hub assembly on 1 side.

In searching the various parts sites, I found a Duralast (Autozone) assembly for $150 which is a full $100 cheaper than National bearing and $150 less than Timkin.

Truck does not see hard off road use and I sure could use the extra $100 to buy the inner and outer axle seals, studs, etc.

So............. Duralast = Good, Bad, whatever?

How much is it total. You can get these pretty cheap on the Internet now. Like 300 ish...

I wouldn't have a problem with the autozone stuff...

Do they sell the assembly and seals as a kit somewhere?

Yes, check out Your Premiere Source for Ford Truck Parts and Accessories they have kits with everything. Or you can do the ebay ones, I have heard of guys using those too...


What I mean is the total price of the hub?

Thanks for the link Layson, but they are actually overpriced when you add it all up.

Nat. Hub assy - $250
Axle seal - $42
Studs - $24
O-Ring - $5...
$319

PSShop = $350

If I get the Duralast take $100 off the $319. Just am not sure about the quality of the Asain made hub assembly. They do however come with the same 1 year warranty as Timkin or Nat. More than likely I will grab the Duralast and get the seals and hub studs from Ford.

Then I would roll that route. I didn't think Autozone was even in the ball park for price...
