Bearings from FCPGROTON?
 
Hey all... i need my rear right bearing replaced, lot of squeaking and grinding, especially during acceleration and left turn, ie, more pressure, the more noise on the wheel.

Lot of people recommended fcpgroton.com for parts, and there is this one bearing part for $30, and my indy is telling me it cant be that cheap unless its a cheap Chinese piece of crap which he doesnt like to use... its MSRP is listed as $75.

Anyone have experience with parts there, do they really sell cheap Chinese parts? They have another one that seems to be the exact same model for $55... Then what about the ones listed for $60, are they different? They seem to have a black liner in the middle instead of tan. Here's the link to my search result:

And my indy said it will take about 2 hours labor and I think he charges $85/hr, so we are looking at about $170 for labor + part.

Thanks!

I would trust bearings from SKF (a Swedish company) and FAG, in a pinch. You get what you pay for!
