9" rear axle bearing

Recommended Posts

Mine is a large bearing Torino style rear, with sealed bearings, retainer, and oil seal.  Does not need axle lubricant to work. Many Mustangs are a different style.

Replaced my axle bearings last year. Don't member the part number, but I ordered them from Summit Racing. They were Timken bearings, stamped made in Japan. Quality looked very good. Put about 4000 miles on them. No problems.

There was a time all Timken bearings were U.S. made.  For a long time now, I'm guessing at least 25 years, Timken has offered both U.S. and imported bearings.  Most Timken bearings you find in parts stores are imported.  Industrial supply stores will carry the U.S. made bearings.  NAPA will sometimes have the U.S. made bearings.  Bearings sold by companies like Moser, Currie, etc. are usually U.S. made.  As you can guess, there is a big price difference between the two.
