Default Final wheel bearing

Keep vue long enough and you get to change all 4 wheel bearings. Did the last yesterday. AZ wants $140. Grr. Independent shop has them for 70 with 3 yr warranty. Says he does not get many complaints. I am 99% sure vue will be gone in 3 yrs

I would have asked the independent guy if you could bring your own, and buy something US made like Timken.
what did you decide on?

Itís $70 for bearing in your hand. That is not installed. You missed that? None installs a bearing for 70.

you actually didn't say that, and I didn't pay attention to the dollar amounts.

I fail to see how the independent shop can give you a 3 year warranty on a bearing replacement when you bring in the bearing.

Replaced my 9th bearing two days ago...did all four chinese low grade the first time, they failed in 15k. Then did timken, the first timken just failed at 45k, tried AC delco professional line now. If you buy cheap you get more work on your hands with these wheel hubs, even with the warranty its hardly worth the $50 to have another project and more noise down the road...
...
'04 Vue 5MT 315K and counting...
