My bearings are going bad in my 2003 Ford F-250. It's 4x4 with ABS. I went to the store to check on the part and everything is quite confusing. I got prices from 150-274.99. The 274.99 is a part from SKF. They tell me that it is the best part next to OEM. My whole problem is I don't want to spend 274.99 when there's a lower price for a hub. I indeed understand that I get what I pay for. O Reilly's has Mastercraft for 200 bucks. Could anyone give me some advice on this? Anyone had good luck with a certain name brand?

For steering and suspension parts I LOVE Moog parts. Some parts are even greaseable where as the original Ford ones weren't and moog price for that look to be $230-280 they also have a 3 yr warranty as well.

Checkout  http://www.rockauto.com/  . They tell you the level of quality and the price. I've been doing business with them for about 8 years and only had one problem which they made right.

I've saved alot of money with them and on occassion found that they had parts(for my 85 C10) that were not available anywhere else. Good Luck, Rick

When it comes to auto parts it is like tractor parts. You DO get what you pay for. Have found out over the years name brand is sometimes more than "paying for the name" wheel bearings are in that category for me. I go with timken if at all possible. Just my 2¢ worth.

I just rebuilt the front axle on my 2001 F350 4X4. Replaced U Joints, Ball Joints upper & lower, & hubs along with brakes. I used Moog hubs from Advance Auto Parts. One thing I like about Advance Auto Parts is the ability to shop for the parts on line, find what store has them in stock, & picking them up at the store. Purchasing on line for store pickup also gives a 10% discount & sometimes more. The hubs on my truck were still Ok but I could not remove them because of corrosion, ended up getting Ball Joints to drop out & cutting them off & driving the hubs out with an air chisel. The lower Ball Joints were defective any way. The Moog Hubs come with the studs for installation many other hubs do not have these they have to be purchased separately. I wish you Good Luck with repair as I had many challenging days doing mine.

Stay away from O Reilly's unless you want to do the job again in a year. Napa is cheaper and better quality

If you go with Rockauto I would go with one of there better brands I bought the middle cost wheel bearings for my Cavailer and both went bad within 6 months under 20k then went to Advance Auto each time for the replacement

Doesn't your truck use a very heavy duty snap ring on the axle ?

:iagree:  :iagree:  :iagree:

 

I can't stress this enough-  DO NOT TIGHTEN THE AXLE BOLT WITH AN IMPACT!

 

Use a torque wrench as the instructions say.  (Ask me how I know?)

Rock auto. Saved enough with them on ball joints, tie rods, etc. (Moog complete rebuild), to replace all the u joints on the '95 ford F150 4x4; with change to spare. Bought Timken front hubs on the Trailblazer (both) for the cost of one locally; 50,000 miles with no issues. Parts are usually here in 3-5 days. :thumbs:
