Default WJ CRD 2.7 Wheel Bearings

Hi all,

Getting some nioses from tyres and bearings so I thought I would get the wheel bearings replaced.

Best place to purchase at the moment for the WJ CRD 2.7 04?

Cheers
Chumby

Standard answer is RockAuto.com, great prices on quality products, and fast delivery.

Thanks Skipperau....

No CRD model listed there, So can I presume the bearings for the 4.7L will fit all ok?

Cheers

Hub assembly is the same across all 4x4 models, so just buy the 4.7 parts and you'll be good to go.

If you are going to keep the car for a while, buy the more expensive name brand bearings, like SKF. The cheaper hubs have crappy Chinese bearings and don't last apparently.

+1 for buying quality parts, I put cheapie ones in that I sourced locally and within 12 months I was chasing a new set. Replaced them with Timken from RockAuto.
And yes, the parts like bearings etc are interchangeable between the models. Engine mounts, cross members, transmission mounts etc aren't though.

My wife is so over me spending money on my WG it's not funny! I guess this is what happens when you buy an old vehicle cheap, that has not been loved, with >225,000km on the clock.

Anyhow, it's developed a moaning from the front. Initially I thought it was tyre noise (that's what it sounds like) except I've changed nothing to do with tyres or air pressure. I since rotated the tyres - no difference. It started a week or two ago - about 100km of driving. It does not seem to be getting louder, unless I am suffering boiled frog syndrome.

Paying a bit more attention to the noise, it goes completely silent if the steering is anything to the left of centre. Straight ahead or anything to the right, it makes the noise.

I've jacked up both front wheels, grabbed them at 6 & 12 o'clock and could not feel any free-play.

I'm figuring it is the right-side front wheel bearing telling me it is close to retirement. i was planning to leave it until I can definitely feel play in one of the hubs so I 100% know I am replacing the correct one.

I found front hubs at Allied Bearings for $80 each in stock locally or I can get Timken ones from Rock Auto for about $140 by the time I pay freight.

Anybody got any thoughts? Does it sound like the bearings? Is it worth almost double for Timken?
