Re: Early vs Late production XJ design change questions

I discovered a failing hub late on a Saturday afternoon and the only replacements to be had that late were Autozone Valuecraft hubs.



I bought both sides fully expecting to be replacing them again in 30,000 miles. I've put over 100,000 miles on them and they are still good. Color me surprised...



Timken used to be the go-to bearing of choice but given the stories I've been hearing about them lately I'm leery of their quality. Sounds like SKF is the way to go now.
