Question Cheap EBay hub bearings?

My 06 box is in need of a RR wheel/hub bearing

Scoped out EBay and found quite a few cheap ones listed for waaaaay less than what the dealer is willing to rob me for.

Now, I know you get what you pay for, but just curious if anyone here has had problems with them?

Thought about going this route myself. Did you end up getting these? If not, I have some used ones I can part with for cheaper than new. LMK!

Re: Cheap EBay hub bearings?

I picked up a pair for $45 shipped and threw them in.

Although I only needed one, I replaced both and kept the original good one as a spare.

Drives like it's brand new again and seems to be holding up just fine.

That's awesome, glad it worked out! I have had some suspension guys tell me it is all the same crap, but I am sure there are differences.

Out of curiosity:
-What was the mileage on your car when it started going bad?
-What side was it?
-Link to the ones you bought?

Thanks!

Re: Cheap EBay hub bearings?

Ebay's not letting me view my purchase on mobile, but the seller was OEMassive

He had them listed for $48.99 or sumthin like that, but had a "make offer" option.

We went back and forth a few times after lowballing and settled on $45 shipped
