Front wheel bearing replacement options?

Postby Spectra1 » Wed Dec 18, 2013 7:56 pm

Needing some new front wheel bearings. Was looking for NSK bearings but I can only find the rear. Can anyone recommend a good aftermarket front wheel bearing and place to buy them? If there is no good aftermarket wheel bearings can anyone recommend a good online source for OEM?

I just used autozones ... against my will because it was in a pinch but they actually fit well and are quiet ...

If you have driven around on an already noticeably bad bearing chances are one or both of your front hubs have been ruined as well. Be prepared to wait if you get it all apart and need a hub because none of the normal part places have them. I found them for about 140 a piece new. Your cheapest option is a used one ofcource, any 90-93 celica 5 stud hub will work.

Ya thats what I was afraid of. So if all hubs are the same then are all wheel bearings the same (GT,GTS, ST, Alltrac)? I have a set of 1990 Celica ST hubs back home that I could have sent to me, would they be compatible?

all the 5 bolt front hubs are the same. Some(all?) of the STs use a 4 bolt hub

what he said
If your going to have someone send them you will need to have the hub pressed out of the knuckle housing or the shipping will be insane.

The hub is part that has studs (bolts) that you put wheel on. The knuckle or carrier is part that
struts and other suspension pieces bolt to :)

Turbo4wd/Alltrac/GTFour use same part (bearing) for front and rear wheels which usually is not a case. I'm not sure about FWD models.
I have always bought from these guys 1stToyotaParts.com but there are others out there.
