Hub assembly

I’m thinking there is bearing noise coming from front passenger side. My tires are in good shape. Any recommendations on good brand of hub assembly? Not sure if I want spend too much on them. I have 130k miles on the clock.

I use AC Delco or Moog. Quailty parts cost a little more but last quite a bit longer. I also get peace of mind too.

We use SKF at the shop because it had the lowest warranty return rate.

AC Delco OEM bearings are good too.

AC Delco Advantage bearings almost always result in a warranty job within a year.

My original Chevy Venture van hubs lasted for 9 years on hard, wash-board country roads. I went with the least expensive brands, and they would no last even 2 years. Go with the AC Delco or similar quality hubs. Same for starters and alternators.

Its getting hard to find a bad brand these days. Besides, once you get hung up on brand, you loose your objectivity while researching the best value for a replacement.

Installation is more important than brand. Dont use impact tools and torque the axle nut to the recommended value. Take your time and to it right and you'll be happy with whatever brand you choose.

If you got a 130 k out of a hub you've done very well in my fleet I can expect them to go at 80 or 90 thousand miles

What does it sound like when the bearings are worn out?
Any symptoms during driving?
Thank you! A

It will make a humming type noise. Check out YouTube for some examples.

Noise varies with speed, turning wheel side to side will change the sound also. Jack it up and check for play in the wheel up and down. Using a bar under the tire is best to offset the weight of the tire and rotor.
