    Default Need to Buy a Hub, Which Brand?

    My 04 GTP has all the brake warnings, bad LF wheel speed sensor. Rockauto has these brands. Should I stay away from any?

    Centric, GMB, WJB, Mevotech are cheaper but are they any good?

    I recognize Raybestos, Timkin, ACDelco, SKF but price goes up.

    Which one would you get?

    add moog to the good list and get one of those, they all got a 3 year warranty and do go bad. but not as fast as the cheapos.

    Timkin or SKF. The Timken is only $85.79 and if you search you can probably find a discount code which may drop it a bit more. I run only Timken or SKF bearings in my GP and they have never let me down. Just make sure you torque the hub nut to the proper setting and you're good to go.

    *edit* Forgot about the Moog's. Those are good quality as well. Another option if they are the most affordable.

    Do not do mevotech anything. I've had issues with all their parts. GMB is decent but wont last. Moog or Timken is the best I've used

    I have two 99s and there are "Precision" brand hubs from O'Reilly's on 7 of those 8 wheels. I have not had trouble with them but don't know who makes them. $125, yellow box with blue writing.

    Ive heard that timeken and SKF can be expected to go for a long while.

    Moog are ok. Last about their warranty period.

    The others die quick and are not worth the money.

    I replaced both my fronts with Timken almost 7 years ago. Zero issues so far.

    I have good luck with used low mileage OEM. The bad news is low mileage stuff is becoming hard to locate any more. Good news is you can use a hub off an Impala all the way up to 2014 model year I believe. I picked one off an 09 Impala at a local pick n pull for $15.00.

    They all suck. I've had my car for 8 years now and had to replace the front bearings 7 times (4 on the right front, 3 on the left front). I started using SKF, but have switched to Delco because up here, the Delco has a 5 year warranty.

    I put Moogs in mine several years ago and they were still in it when I sold the car earlier this year.
