Re: Rear Wheel Bearing Install...
You are just being screwed like everyone else, those bearings should be sold in sets with the retainer , not seperately . Since it's not a common part like a Chevy , they get lazy and don't package them up as a set for a specific application . I hate that , shows just how much these suppliers care . You can go locally to a bearing distributor and get them to find BCA or Timkens , a lot better quality . Use the Suzuki seals , they last a lot longer and fit better . Koyo's are actually on the low end of quality in the Japanese bearing market , could be the reason they don't last all that long under heavy tires/loads . The offset on the one you have goes to the outside , otherwise the axle will sit in too far in the side gears .
