Hello all,
I'm new to the forum and need your recommendations.

I have a 2009 GMC Sierra 4x4 with nearly 200K miles on it. Recently I detected a slight noise/vibration. Today I've isolated it to the driver side wheel bearing hub.

I plan on replacing this my self. But currently looking at which hub is the best value. Currently my thoughts are going with the MOOG.

OPTIONS:
OEM from GM $461
Duralast Gold $269
Precision $239
MOOG $222
Duralast $169
Drive works $167
Line Master $166
PDC $149

What do you recommend?

I have no immediate plans to sell this truck.

I live in the Cincinnati Ohio area and haven't found a supplier of Timken. Do any of the chain stores carry them?

Cheapest Timkens you'll find is on Ebay! Not Rockauto. Sorry it's true though, I bought my Timken hubs from Ebay from a vendor there and it came out to far less than what Rockauto was charging, and the Ebay vendor had free shipping.

FYI. The OEM AC Delco hubs are made by Timken. Here is a pic of the factory hub that I took off my 2006 Sierra a couple of months ago.

I couldn't find timkens locally. I've got precisions with a 3 year warranty. They lasted about 2 1/2 years and I just replaced them under the warranty. I'm lifted with wide wheels though so that probably contributes to them wearing out faster than normal.
