Been a long long time since I’ve posted on here! I’m doing a body off rebuild at the moment. Looking for recommendations from people that have purchased before. I know there from a Jeep Grand Cherokee but not sure which year/model? Or which brands to look for or avoid? Prices can vary near £100 per corner from different Tvr part suppliers!

Thanks I had looked at that post but couldn’t seem to use the link. I can use it now though thanks. 4 years on do you know how his hubs have been at all?

The hubs are still on the car and are fine. The last MOT spotted a little noise from one of the front hubs, not enough for an advisory though but it will need replacement eventually. I would say they are good for 5 years at least.

Hi All,

I'd read this thread with interest as I'm just in the process of putting the chassis back together and when I came to fit my new wheel bearings they didn't quite fit and so looked at this thread and the link to ebay here;

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Front-Wheel-Bearing-Hub-...

However, having ordered one of these they are the wrong type - these are for a Grand Cherokee 1999-2004 and so the stud part of the bearing is way too big and certainly won't fit my 18" spiders. They also don't fit in the hub properly either (neither do my other new ones and so I've started a new thread on that) just so that no-one else makes the same mistake and orders these.

I’m also in the middle off chassis refurb, just not sure if to just pay the Tvr parts price of £83each rather than like you self buy the wrong ones and have to buy twice! Guts me to pay the extra £120 odd extra a set for probably the same part but least I know they will fit.

£40 you mean? I'd say a wheel bearing that only lasted 5yrs on a light car with low use wasn't all that. You would hope the TVR one was better quality.

Just to update this thread in the end purchased mine from TVR parts - seem really good quality and best of all they just fit - although the cost is higher it seems for ease of fitment and quality it justifies the higher cost really.
