Front Hub/Bearing replacement comparison

After getting a nearly 500 dollar front replacement hub from Ford dealership,,, I find this Timken replacement unit for less than 1/2 the price from Ford.

Does anyone have any experience with these Timken replacement bearings? The write ups I saw were positive.

Quite a savings compared to what I paid.!

Timken is a major player in the automotive world. I would not hesitate to use their products.

I used cheap eBay ones first. I can tell you they're garbage after cooking two in about 6 months. Put in timken from autozone and have about 40k miles on it and its great so far. I even took it apart to look for bluing from heat and there is none.

Also riffraff sells a fitting that allows you to grease them. Worth every penny IMO.

I replaced my passenger side with a Timken about a month ago. So far, so good! I deal with their industrial bearings all the time @ work. They are a pretty quality product.

I have not yet found that fitting on RIffRaff site ? gotta' link to it?

does the fitting allow adding grease to the main non-servicable bearing or the needle bearings?

thanks RB
