    So I went for a free rotate and balance today only to find out I have 2 bad wheel bearings up front. Explains the noise that just started. Anyway, are Moogs worth it in this situation or should I just buy the store brand?

    Timkens are what I've always used/heard

    Those a.c. delcos are even higher than the moog! I've used timken before but don't recall if I had longevity with them or not. Thanks.

    the 3 options are ACdelco, Moog, or Timken. Timken being the cheapest. i think all 3 last around the same amount of time. if 4wd, dont over tighten the CV shaft nut or it will cause it to go out again.

    Went with cheap $43 ones from rock auto. We will see how long they last!

    I only drive about 8000 miles a year. I'm sure they are made in the same plant as a major brand. I will update if they fail!
