1. Help me choose which wheel bearings to buy

    Guys I got a quote from the dealer asking a lot of money for 2 wheel bearings. Would they get mad if I brought them my own 2 front wheel bearings? It's making a grumbling sound on the road and highway, as if it's stuck in a lower gear and does not want to shift higher. Is that what a dying wheel bearing sound like? It must have happened after I went over this nutty huge pothole..

    *At the same time my transmission over temp is flashing, but doubt it's related...

    *Can you help me choose which wheel bearings for a 2006 JEEP GC 4.7? Someone already recommended Timken.

    *PRO Part #*29513234*Front $76.64

    VALUE PRO Part # 513234 Front $79.84

    RAYBESTOS Part # 713234 Professional Grade Front $110.80

    FAG Part # FW9234 Front (Only 2 Remaining) $115.17

    MOOG/NATIONAL Part # 513234 Front $128.94

    TIMKEN Part # HA590036 {Click Info Link for Alternate/OEM Part Numbers52089434AA, 52089434AB, 52089434AC, 52089434AD, 52089434AE}*Front $128.94

    SKF Part # BR930634 {#52089434AB, 52089434AC} Wheel Hub Assembly Front $168.55

    timkin or moog. top brand names and wouldn't be surprised if that is what the dealer would sell you at a higher price. Get them at your local auto parts store, (autozone, advanced, pepboys, oriley's) Wheel bearings are not that big of a job in my opinion to pay the higher dealer price to install, I would take it to a cheaper shop, any decent shop should be way more than qualified to do this job. Trans high temp could very well be related to this as the engine and trans have to work harder to keep you moving with a bad bearing. You could install a trans cooler, or it may go back to normal once the bearing is fixed. good luck!

    Most dealers will NOT install parts they didn't supply.
    '87 Comanche 4x4 lifted 5 1/2" on 33" tires 4.0L/AW4/NP242 $3500
    Perfect combination but too small to haul my Grand Kids and wife in.

    you are lucky. most dont like to, and if they do they wont warranty as good. I only stick with timken or skf. Usually skf is a little cheaper than timken though

    So did the bearings sort out the problem with the transmission overheat situation ?

    Hey there, my transmission over temp message case seems to have been summer heat related but we'll see...

    Someone posted this elsewhere recently. .

    Any body with this concern should let the dealer know about STAR case # S1421000016 and have the Powertrain Control Module replaced. You have an 8 year/80,000 mile warranty.
