Wrench General recommendations- Sway Bar Links and Wheel Bearings

Hello everyone- I'n just looking for General Recommendations on Sway Bar Links and Wheel Bearings. This would be for my 2007 Chevy Uplander (similar to the Saturn Relay- from a body style.)

I've used Timken Wheel Bearings and Moog Suspension parts before. Back when we owned our 97 SW2- I replaced the Rear Sway Bar Links with Moog Links and they were great.

Just wondering for the larger vehicles, as in Minivan size- if there are any differences, or if there are any specific brands for Wheel Bearings and Sway Bar Links that would be recommended?

I will be replacing these on the front of the van- as the Uplander has front wheel hub assemblies, where the the Wheel Bearing is encased in the Hub itself- with the ABS Sensor plug. Doesn't look too bad to change- but we just had to get new tires installed on the Van today; and the Tire Shop stated that the Wheel Bearings and the Sway Bar Links should be replaced. The Van currently has ~180K miles on it. I have done brakes on this Van a few times. We have owned the Van since 2014, so this would be the first time that wheel bearings and Sway Bar Links would be replaced. They are probably due anyway.

Just wondered what everyone's thoughts are?

-Oh- and despite the fact that the Uplander/Relay/Montana/Terraza didn't get good Consumer reviews- our Van has been a decent Van. Granted we did have to the get the Transmission rebuilt- it has been a solid Van since we have owned it.

Default Re: General recommendations- Sway Bar Links and Wheel Bearings

Hi Brian-

We recently had a short thread on wheel bearings
Only recommendation: SKF
Might want to hold off until the old ones start to whine/groan.

Moog made their reputation on U.S. hotrods/muscle cars. An old time parts house here cautioned that Moog had been acquired by a big company ( i think Fed Mogul) early 2000s, and that such acquisitions oft deteriorate part quality.
I recently bought some stuff from them & seems OK(??).

A Very Good suspension/alignment (and general maintenance) shop around here suggested thet for good suspension parts, buy DANA, which, he advised are available thru the NAPA parts chain.

regards, T m.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
