I am going to ask a similar question that I have seen here before. I have a late '99 4wd F-250 and know of the common problem they have with front bearings and since they are sealed most will just replace the hub assembly. I have 93,000mi and am running 35" tires on my original hubs/bearings with no problem but am going to go ahead and replace them for the sake of preventive maintenance because it will happen (go bad) when I am out of town or something. Question is I have looked on ebay and have seen them sold as sets for $230 to $400 plus. They all have a 1 year/unlimited mileage warranty. Would you trust these? They use the same manufacturer part # but under different names...i.e. GMB, Autoparts International, etc......none I have heard of. Just don't want cheap but also don't want to spend more for the exact same thing. Anyone have thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc? Thanks!!

Thanks for replying. I will check them out and see what lind of price they offer. I kind of figured the end result would be "you get what you paid for"! Thanks again.

Thanks! I noticed the part number was the same as other ebayers but I beleive various manufacturers use the same number. The only difference between mine and the ones in the link is mine only has rear abs. It is a late '99 but no front abs and for some reason the non abs hubs are more expensive which I figured it would be the opposite unless it is less common. One ebay site claims they are ASE master mechanics and use the same parts they sale and they appear to be the same as the others. I may try them and see if I don't find a good deal elsewhere. Keep me posted on the hubs you replaced.....and thanks for the feedback!
