    GM usually has a better part as well, being oem and whatnot, they are around the $200 each, but not warranty.

    I can't wait to drop that kind of money...... I am worried that mine are worn from being old and sitting. My car came to me with only 28000 miles on it, so I am assuming it wasn't driven much. Sometimes the sitting can get to a car.
    Go to Advance Auto, they have National brand (very good quality) and they are only $135 per hub. Comes with a 1 year warranty too.

    I went to them for some hubs on my grand am, the hub failed in like 10,000 miles, started grinding and stuff. Totally fried when I took it all apart, I hate stuff like this cause you only want to do the job once...

    You probably bought an NTP bearning instead of National. They are the cheap brand and usually don't last very long.

    Exclamation

    The old saying holds some value: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
    This may not apply to everything, but it fits here.

    If the bearing is worn, you'll know it. It will have play, or it will make noise. They may also set an ABS code if there is a sufficient amount of play in it. I have to say, I rarely see f-cars needing front hub bearings at my shop. Seems to be a FWD thing.

    If you have none of the above...

    Drive it until it does, and don't be cheap on parts when it's time to replace.

    I agree here. Or in my case driving from Ohio to Arizona and back, and all the other places we drive. I can't have a car leave me stranded with family in the middle of the desert. All wear and tear items get replaced on my cars after so many miles. Just safe insurance in my book.

    Everyones outlook is different. Maybe some people never leave town in their cars. Do what you feel comfortable with.
