#4447865 - 07/02/17 10:08 PM Which rear bearing/hub assembly?

Hello all - I've got the rear trailing arm out of our '09 Mazda 5 to change out the bushing, and noticed that the wheel bearing is making a bit of noise. It can be changed on-car, but will be easier to do while the arm is out.

I often go with dealer parts, and will phone for a price tomorrow, but am considering using an aftermarket part. In ascending order of cost:

World Parts $80
Mevotec $84
Auto Extra $98
Beck/Arnley $158
Moog $161
SKF $192

I assume the first three listed are not that great, but would like to hear others' experiences. I'm willing to pay more for better quality.

Thanks in advance.

Not on your list, but a Timken is $94.79 at rock auto. I would go that route.

Email Beck/Arnley and see where theirs is made, often times they rebox OEM stuff. Otherwise, Timkin or SKF.

Out of the OP's list, the cheapest I'd go is Beck Arnley. I've bought a lot of parts from them in recent years and I've been quite happy with what I've received. I've gotten a couple Chinese and Taiwanese parts from them, but they've still been good quality parts.

As already mentioned, email BA with the part number and they'll tell you the COO. They've done this for me multiple times and have given me great support when I had questions.

Thanks guys - great advice so far. Bear in mind that the prices I quoted were from Parts Avatar and were in C$. The more expensive options include free shipping. I presume the Rockauto prices would be in US$, and that I'd have to pay shipping.

From this list SKF only unless you can confirm the BA is OE or Timken, F.A.G. etc.

Edit: Moogs parent company bought National bearing some years ago, they were top a shelf bearing manufacturer but now are Chinese made by a third party, stay away.
If you can look at it before you buy and it has Made in USA on it the Moog is good (its a real NOS National).

For hub style bearings- SKF (on certain number they incorporate improvements over OE), Timkin or BCA.

For double sealed, non hub style- All of the above plus Koyo, NTN, F.A.G.

The OEM bearings for the girlfriend's Mazda 3 are made in Japan by NTN. Thats what I would get, but thats just me.

If you're selling soon use the cheapest you can find. If you're keeping it for the foreseeable future fit the dealer/OE equivalent.

Olas, it's a hard-to-find manual-transmission minivan in a sea of automatics. I want to keep it for a long time!
