I have been getting them from the dealer but only because I have a friend who works in parts at a dealer so I get a good price. If I didn't get that deal I'd run the napa ones.

Ballistic Fab has new unit bearing elimination kits coming out that look pretty nice and look like they will not be to much more than a couple of bearings.

I got the Timken Lifetime bearing when I was in a pinch from Autozone and it has 25k on it and doing good.

Make sure you have an awesome pair of Lockring pliers before you start! That lockring is actually a friggin washer that has not business being opened

I'd opt for that, it's the only thing that would explain it.

You are talking about the snap ring on the axle shaft behind the locking hub, right?

On mine I knew it was the bearing because when I would turn the growl would get louder . When I took it off it was definately bad tire moved like a bad ball joint it was so loose .
