Timken seems to be the expensive (nice?) ones, and also comes with a 3yr warranty, which are about $185.
And worth it. Bearings are definitely an item where you get what you pay for. Experience, not opinion.
The other two options are the duralast 1yr warranty ones for about $115
Speaking from my experience with all things I ever bought with the "Duralast" name on it from from Autozone is that they charge you double what it is actually worth because it WILL fail in the warranty period, so plan on this one failing within 2 years and doing this job again. When you run your first
failed Duralast bearing back to Autozone, keep your receipt handy and they are happy to hand over another replacement. This replacement will also fail again in under 2 years, but since this one is a replacement for a failed unit, there is no warranty.
So you get the absolute joy of doing this job 3 times instead of once because you wanted to "save" $70. Not really saving yourself, in fact you are costing yourself MUCH MUCH more by going the Autozone "Duralast" route. I view Autozone and their "Duralast" brand as about the bottom of the barrel and only go to Autozone for National name-brand things like oil, chemicals and waxes.
1A Auto set (both fronts) for $175, which has a 2yr warranty.
Being tight on money I have to ask has anyone used the 1A Auto versions and if so, thoughts?
Zero experience with 1A Auto bearings. For $10 more to get the Timken bearing, I wouldn't bother with them either.
