Why don't you go do a write up or something?
I bought the bearings from autozone, they said timken on the tag, I burned the first pair out in 30,000 miles. one at 27,500 one at 29,000.
Multiple members of my old grand prix group had issues with these bearings.
The installation went perfectly.
Installation methods were even varied.
From one bolt at a time to putting all three in and then going a turn round and round and round till tight.
Torque wrenches were used, instructions followed, locktite applied.
There was NO error in installation.
I am going to try to meet you halfway on this.
I bought it at autozone, this is the only experience I have had with timken.
Now, autozone could have been getting lower grade parts from timken to boost their profit margins so that the parts I received were not up to the normal stellar par of timken's general lines.
Or they could have been buying crap and putting it in different boxes, I certainly wouldnt put it past them.
