I have replaced both hubs and the passenger hub twice. I failed state inspection on the passenger side and replaced with the Duralast component and all was well. For a couple months. Then I had a crazy vibration when turning left and I replaced the driver side thinking that was the issue, but I did so with the timken. Issue was still there. It was the one I just replaced. Do not, absolutely, do not buy the cheaper Duralast autozone hub. Mine failed within 4 months. The autozoner argued with me until I placed the relatively new hub on his counter and spun it. It vibrated the mouse for his computer off of the counter top. He then had no issue replacing the hub. Thankfully, autozone gave me the warranty refund and placed it towards the purchase of the Timkens, not that they had a choice.
Please buy the timken hub with the 3 yr warranty vs the duralast with the 1 yr. The quality is evident. Now that both hubs are new, everything is awesome and the truck drives like new.
My drivers front had an abs sensor and the passenger did not, but when I got the passenger hub, I chose to get it with the abs sensor. So I just ziptied the connector to the upper control arm, since there was not a 4 wheel abs option installed on my truck. Through this understanding progress, I asked Dodge what options were installed on my truck. Most 4x4's are only 2 wheeel abs and they are on the back wheels. Doesnt matter for me. Since it is just ziptied and sitting there, but all issues have been corrected with the hub. I even replaced te hub in their parking lot. Haha Sukk it.
I know I may be jerk, but are you sure you have 4 wheel abs. If 2 wheel, then here is your part number for the better Timken bearing from autozone sp500100 and if you have 4 wheel then here is the same number sp500100. I am sure where you got the "driveworks nt515073 hub assembly" and they do not offer any other option. I have always felt that Advanced auto is less advanced than the name implies. PLus they do not have a rewards program and the sales people are idiots. MOE ( my own experience)
