Need to replace left front bearings-hub, and tie rod ends. Watched video on A1 auto youtube, for front hub wondering if napa is best to buy hub from. Also haven't looked up tie rod ends yet. A local repair shop wants $96.99 for each end and $60.00 a piece to install $388.93 (includes alignment) plus tax. And for hub $252.00 and $95.00 install. $777.98 for both with tax. Kinda steep ain't it?

RIDICULOUS!

I would strongly recommend the TIMKEN 513179 hub -
$93.89 with free shipping -

and for the outer tie rod ends -
I recommend MOOG ES3452-
$30 each - with shipping -

FWIW....

The TIMKEN 513179's that I installed years ago on my 02 and 00 where made in the USA. The last set I ordered for my 04 (Nov 2014 Rock Auto) where made in Korea. The quality looked good, time will tell if they hold up as well.

NAPA premium bearings are SKF, they are just as good as Timken, probably cost a bit more depending on where you buy. I believe the NAPA low-cost bearings are National, since NAPA also sells Moog TREs and National is a sister division of Fed Mogul.

Timken has their own steel mill in the US. Sometimes they buy steel from other mills too but it is generally the best quality of materials. That's why their bearings last.
