Real SKFs are very good, fake ones from eBay etal, not so much.

Me? OEM and be done with it.

Buy from a legitimate retailer vs Amazon or eBay. Go to a bearing supplier, you may have a local one, or do a web search.

I wasn’t asking you to post your address, what I am asking you to do is add MIchigan to your profile, Davisburg too if you wish.

It’s helpful to have a location reference for advice given or received

Add your location at this link -----> ucp.php?i=264
