Go with the Timken. (my dad makes the brass cage the ball bearings sit in)

Plus Timken is a well known brand.

Many lower cost replacements are as good as name brands.

I would like to hear from Maymybonneliveforever, I believe he got a set of those hubs off Ebay.

I agree with Bill. The only way we can give an "educated" answer is to find someone who has some experience with them. We know Timken is good. The generic may be also.

I purchased both front wheel bearings from http://stores.ebay.com/Mac-Auto-Part...QQftidZ2QQtZkm the cost at the time was approximately $75.00 each plus shipping and it came with a lifetime warranty, which I didn't need or could use since I live in Canada. Bearings arrived in about a week, and I'm very happy with them...... I didn't go with the cheapest, I went with the best warranty, since I felt that would most likely ensure better quality.

PS. It was for a 95 Bonne SSEi


Good luck.
