Who has a good price on rear wheelbearings?

Who has the best prices on rear axle wheelbearings? NAPA wants $80 for new bearings and seals, seems kinda high. I'm looking for the ones at the outer axle, not on the 3rd member.

Re: Who has a good price on rear wheelbearings?

Hello Jeepn (shouldn't that be Zukn

I recently needed a complete set of front wheel bearings and my local generic parts house kindly offered to order the bearings for $30 a set. I said no thanks and went to an industrial bearing dealer and got the bearings for $18 a set. Look in your phone book for an industrial bearing shop; also, you will need the bearing number, they can't look up bearings by application.

HTH,

I just bought two sets from a local parts house. They were 30$ each set. These bearings also came with the retainer collar. The old collar usually doesn't survive the process of removing the old bearing. I also went with the spidertrax rear disk brakes so there is no fooling around with the backing plates.

Re: Who has a good price on rear wheelbearings?

Nope, it is in there, I'm wondering how welded it is.

I think I may just snag the rear axle from the '87 Zuk at the house, I need to grab the front as well. Since we just towed it 350+ miles, I know they're probably good. I know I'll only have on break if I snap the long one, but I'm flat towing it on the highway anyway.

Who said Zuk stuff was cheap? For that price I can almost have a D44 narrowed on one end and use that. Sheesh!

Re: Who has a good price on rear wheelbearings?

Jeepn, this is a copy from a earlier post on this.

"I called my NAPA and the price is....$23.96 per bearing. The # is GRW-185R That is the rear axle wheel bearing. If you would like to call, the number is 219-255-0348. They do not carry them in stock, but can have them next day if ordered early enough. I have no idea why prices are different. Thats a Indiana phone number."

I just can not figure why the price is so different. That is the price I pay. If you cant find them cheaper, I can buy them and mail them to you. $80 is just crazy!
