Bad Wheel Bearing

This morning I am replacing my brake rotors on my truck. I had the hunch before that my driver's side front wheel bearing was going bad, but once I got the wheel off, I have determined that it is bad. I have access to a Napa and Carquest here in town. I'd like to get one today put on since I already have it apart and it is my daily driver. Do either of these stores provide good quality wheel bearings? Which one is better? Or should I just order one from online?

I appreciate your comments! THanks!

Autozone should have the Timkens... they're good. But, you're either going to have to re-use your studs, or wait til the dealer opens on Monday for new studs if they're not open today.
