    Where to get some hub bearings?

    I need bearing hubs for my Suburban, and the Canadian price gouging is pissing me off. I phoned the big stores here and the no-name bearings with 1 year warranty is double the price of Timken bearings with lifetime warranty in the US. Seriously WTF? How the hell can I support the locals when its this out of whack?

    Anyone know a good place to buy them locally that doesn't gouge like that? I need some other parts as well, so I might just make the trip across the border and save a bunch.


    Thanks

    It's not us gouging you... we'd have to sell below our cost to come even CLOSE to what you can buy the stuff for down there! I've worked in auto parts for quite a few years now, even getting parts 10% over cost at work I still buy lots of my parts/accessories in the states!

    Well its a real shame, because I genuinely want to buy local. But when you're talking a 100% surcharge for an inferior product, common sense kicks in.

    I don't know what prices are for your Suburban but my Dodge 3500 were nuts. I went to Ski at CT motorsports and paid a ton less and I feel the price was very fair. Give him a call and see if he can do better.
