i did mine with the ones from super cheap, I havnt had a problem with them. Stupid me i got the rotors from ym old work for $20 a disk then got bendix general CT pads at trade which cost $36 then i needed new seals and u cant just buy new seals so i got the full bearings which are $25 a corner.

But it really doesnt make a s**t what ones you use. Just lube them up good with the right grease.

Dba rotors will have new hub seals.

Or at least my $5/side bearings had 2 bearings and a seal but my DBA slotted rotors already had a new seal in there.
