2006 VUE 3.5L
Default Hanger bearing replacement

So I am in need of a new hanger bearing for the driveshaft on my AWD 06 Vue . Just wondering what the best option is here in Canada . I know awhile back there was some discussion about the limited supply , and some talk a out after market solutions. Is there an after market bearing that is better than OEM ?

OJ - I've not replaced the bearing for my 2005 yet but recently ran across following source. I've got no idea if its better than OEM but price is attractive.

It appears shipping to Canada is available but you need to contact them for cost:

Found this one on eBay. I haven't had to replace a hanger bearing in either of my Vue's yet, so I can't speak for the quality of this brand, but for $99 with the U-joints included, I don't think that you can beat the price. Plus, they will ship to Canada for $14.95. So not too bad of a deal overall.

Oh and it has a lifetime warranty which is pretty awesome. I tend to be skeptical of lifetime warranties, but at least if it fails you will have somebody that you can throw the broken part at and hopefully get a replacement

So just a follow up to the hanger bearing . I first contacted my local Chevy dealer and they quoted me a price of $372.75 for the hanger bearing . I then contacted a local driveline shop ( London drive systems ) and they had the replacement bearings for $91.41 . I removed the driveshaft myself , dropped it off in the morning and picked it up 2 hours later. Total cost for the job was $231.42. That included 1 hr labour , a new u joint and of course the hanger bearing .
