Default Re: Replaced Wheel Bearing on "new" '02 SL1

Pretty much all passenger car grade (100% CRAP according to our aerospace inspectors lol) are ball bearings. Some truck wheel bearings have a wider surface area and have room for proper roller bearings, and I think RWD vehicles tend to have rollers in the front as well.

Pretty sure our automotive wheel bearings are made in our Chengdu, China plant...there's a reason they don't do the aerospace bearings and it's not just because the government won't let another government have access to flight critical parts...lol

My last wheel bearing game ended with SKF...pretty much all other brands went bad in under a week, though the Timken one took nearly 2 months. Quite a bit of the issue is up to the installer, if the bearing goes in at all crooked it either has to be taken out and reset or it'll be "reset" with a new bearing in a small number of days.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
