Comments about National Wheel Taper Bearing:

These are good bearings. they fitted-up very well (They have to be pressed onto the hub, and the race pressed into the knuckle.). I have had them on for a week with no noise, or slop from them.

Make sure to change the grease.

Comments about National Wheel Taper Bearing:

Some of the other reviews said this bearing failed prematurely. I am willing to bet that they did not replace the packing grease that was in it with wheel bearing grease; this needs to be done. The grease that comes in it is simply to prevent rust and for manufacturing/shipping purposes. It is not meant to be wheel bearing grease.

One more thing, the bearing is made in Japan.....this is a good thing.

      This was installed along with new subaru seals, and a new hub. Lasted about 3 months, assembled by a machine shop. Not happy.

      This item was installed on a 2000 Subaru Legacy less than a week ago (or under 200 miles) and already the bearing is beginning to feel loose and the entire assembly was assembled according to specs.

                Good question, ChaseF! You'll need to purchase two of the National Wheel Taper Bearing - Part No. 517008 for the both sides of the front inner bearing.

                Don't know if this was the inner or outer, but I had to get a hub to complete the repair.
