Hi Fellas,

I have an AU, which is making some funny front wheel bearing noises.

I've been quoted $185/side for the front wheel bearing hub assembly, and Ford is probably even more expensive.

You can get the same thing for around $60/side on ebay. My question is, has anyone purchased and used these cheaper ebay items? Are they ok or dodgy? Some come with 3yr warranties.

Thanks for your help.

Joe

With a 3 yr warranty its far cheaper that what you were quoted which they probarbly use the same parts as sold on ebay.

but with 3 yr warranty you could just keep taking them back! sounds ok as long as they give you a new one.... or maybe they hope you get sick of taking them out and sending them away for an exchange

Thanks for those responses fellas. Autofast2 - the timken bearings you refer to - I assume you're talking about the full hub assembly which is required for AU onwards? I'll check out the for sale section if so.

Autofast - I checked your ad but couldn't see bearings...only tailights, intake snorkels, etc.
