Wheel bearing hub going out

I’ve got a 2002 F350 4x4 srw and left front wheel bearing hub is going out. Has been making a noise for a while but just got worse this week. Look online at the different manufacturers parts available. Advance Auto Parts has their house brand Driveworks 1yr warranty for around $120 ea, Moog 3 yr warranty for $213 or Dorman Limited life time warranty for $216.
Are the moog and dorman that much better than the house brand and for almost double in price?

Thanks, iohn

Iím about to replace my hubs also. I was planning on using Timkens. What is the best brand for suspension parts on these trucks, Timken? Moog? Something else?

You want the best you can afford for the 99-03 hub bearing assembly units.

Timken, OEM, Moog would be my top three in that order too.

make sure check the drive shaft stubs for wear too.

Timken is OEM and our sponsor 1A auto takes the Timken 2 year warranty and backs it with a lifetime on their dime

I have had the Diveworks hubs on mine for 3 years, no problems yet. If you want the best get Timken or SKF. Moog is a waste of money, they are no better than the cheap brands.

As others have mentioned, Timken is the way to go. I've seen them in the $100 range on Amazon (though you probably don't get the warranty) or 1A auto has the lifetime warranty with them.

OEM would be a good choice but I'm not sure about their price point.

Moog is no better than cheap Chinese specials these days - they leveraged their good name for short term profits and are riding that wave until it dies. They do make some high-end lines but it's confusing as to when you're buying that and why support a company that isn't being upfront.

Dana/Spicer, SKF, and XRF are good choices for front end components though I don't believe any make the hub bearings for these trucks

MOOG has gone to crap. They used to be pretty good a few years ago, but the best out there for replacement is Timken (which is what Motorcraft is) or SKF. When I was at the steelmill, we used SKF for about 80% of the applications. Very good quality.

Anyone know about the Dorman hub #951-059? On Advance Auto's site they have a lifetime warranty.

I'm running timkens, really high quality. Was impressed when I unboxed it.

Moog is garbage, I had a tie rod BEND on a stock truck within 100 miles of driving it.

Tie rods shouldn't bend... Especially driving them flat.
Moog never replied to my emails and always dodged my phone calls. I will NEVER run moogs ever again. Shadiest company ever.

Like most Dorman products, they are fine. But they are overpriced for the quality you get and there are better options out there. Only buy Dorman if no other options exist or you're in a bind and need one NOW.
