  1. Thank you rock, I've been retired for the last 5 years, appreciate your experience with these parts. If the replacement Timken is not US made I'll check local parts stores that carry Moog for US made hubs. I understand even Moog has some Asian sources.
  2. Well I checked Mac's thread again, I now believe my hub is genuine Timken just made in Korea. Still, I contacted Amazon and asked for a replacement. Below is my bearing & Mac's, his knock off first, note on mine it is flush
  3. Already have seen that, goggle search. The studs he noted tipped me off, though my box did have Timken color changing sticker
  4. Can anybody tell me a source for US made Front bearing/hub part # 513121 ? Fits many GM vehicles including my 2000 Eldo. I ordered a Timken off Amazon & even though most reviews said "Made in the USA" this one says S Korea

    Not for $15, that's a price you get when you're a shop & do a lot of business with the machine shop. Before I retired, I dealt with several machine shops, a few that would have done it for free. You can barely get a brake disc machined for $15 these days, forget about chucking up a CV shaft end.

    What's the name of this machine shop, where is it located? Is that retail labor cost, or your shop "favor" rate?

    Package arrived yesterday, I have to say this is some piece of engineering from Fitzall. Half Shaft looks great and the seal / bearing assembly is really well machined. It's basically a steel housing with a bearing and seal pressed in. Spare seal included. Pics to follow

    I also am going to try this kit next month. My left axle boot is torn so I need to swap out the axle anyway and I can fix the leak at the same time. I'll report back on the result.
  10. Rear Knuckles - After Market Solution

    Cool, this is a great thread, needs to be pinned in tech info. My 2000 Eldo is still running great, radiator cracked @ the tank the other week, otherwise GTG. In the 80°f range today here in South Florida.
  11. Wheels are off a 2005 DeVille I hate 4 doors, so no chance I'd buy one.
  12. Update: After 9 months, all is well. Car drives like new.
  13. Rear knuckle replacement

    Wow , almost 9 years and finally a service part(s) Good job Mike
  14. Thanks Mike, it is a nice tight example, unmolested and well taken care of. I had the dealer run the warr history and it had the GMPP extended warranty until 2010. And the case half seals were done while in warranty at the dealer, so one huge job done.
