I'm pricing front hub bearings p/n 515072 and am surprise at the wide price range. It appears these bearings can be bought anywhere between $65-$185 each. MOOG which I've often used as a guide for quality states their bearings are are repackaged "National" brand or others. Timken bearings are in the upper price range. I realize there is chinese junk out there, but my concern is to think I'm buying quality and still end up with the junk. So does anyone have recent experience/ recommendation in buying front hub bearings?
Thanks,

I got 4 hemis and a 97 ram with 361,000 on it so I have replaced a few of these, with the 100 of thousands of tons of road salt used here annually in WI. I would not waste my money personally on any expensive wheel bearing, salt takes them out about every 2-3 years. 515072 is always instock at my local advance $79.99 hope this helps. By the way never seize every portion of the new hub going back on someday you might have to replace it good luck.

timkin is your best part out there but its pricey moog is the next best option for your dollar at work I change multiple hubs and bearings all the time and we use moog bearings 90% of the time due to price and availability I personally use moog myself on my own vehicles good parts and deff be sure to antiseize everything so they come back apart down the road
