Timken will be a quality part... That's where I would be looking.

I thought I read on DF recently, that the Timken hub unit isn't "all that" anymore?

I've read that to zman. They sold to someone who uses a lesser quality part. They aren't what they used to be

I bought a Napa brand hub assembly a few months ago. I've only put a few hundred miles on 'em, and although it's not saying much, they're still holding up.

With the spindles and stubs that will be a sweet conversion. I want to do the same with mine someday.

Oh trust me I already know exactly what I need for it, but I'm not to that point with the truck yet... time and money are still being directed towards getting it completely reliable.
