Rear Wheel Bearings

Postby Stalkbroker94 - April 14th, 2019, 5:09 pm

for starters, I'm new here, so I apologize if this has been discussed already. I've got a 2006 Escape XLT that's front wheel drive. I may eventually put in a 4x4 transmission, but that will have to wait for a couple of years because I'm still paying off the loan.
That being said, I am hearing a lot of noise from the passenger rear wheel bearing and when I put it on the hoist at the dealership I work at, it was indeed a bit wiggly. The other side is likely completely fine, but I'm considering just taking care of it while I do the other one because the last time I didn't in my previous car (05 Park Ave) the other bearing started to go out a couple hundred miles later.
Can anyone recommend some long lasting bearings that won't blast a hole in my wallet?

Timken or Centric bearings have good history. And dont make the mistake of just replacing the bad one. Do both to save headaches down the road.

Let us know if you find some apart from the dealership. I've been looking around for my 05 but nobody seems to carry them.
