what's the best source for front wheel and knuckle bearings? I called Toyota--- too much money. NAPA is cheaper but I want to know who's bearings they sell (I'll call them today) anybody else Ii should call? I'm just north of seattle
I have found the CR(Chicago Rawhide) bearings are the same as OEM, they are Koyo's and about 1/3+ the price. I haven't found knuckle bearings for much less than Toyota price of $20 each bearing and race. Well maybe a bit less but they were TRW's I think, I went with OEM Koyos from the dealer instead
I get my brake and bearing at South Side Brake and Clutch in Tacoma but I think they have shops up your way(Seattle right?)
Every CR bearing I have used came in a CR box but a baged Koyo(OEM) was inside
There are 2 shops in my town that sell bearings, under bearings in the yellow pages. Called last week. They can get all Timkin bearings, each under $15. I used Morgan's bearing number list ( Here ) to get the prices.
