Almost forgot. I wanted to mention that you can often save money and acquire better than original quality bearings from bearing specialty houses. Virtually any bearing made is available from several different manufacturers by cross referencing the numbers stamped on the bearing. SKF, NTN, FAG, Timken and so many others.

What's interesting is bearings are made to certain 'classes' of quality and can be upgraded. From a class 4 to a 5, a 5 to a 6 and so on. The higher classed bearings are made of a better quality material, better heat treat, closer tolerances and such. Often the better classed bearing can be had through the bearing houses for LESS that the OEM or parts house replacements.

Just throwing this out there...FYI.
