    You can get a hub kit. Comes with the bearings. Bolt pattern is 5 x 4 1/2

    From my experience there is no standard bearing size. You need to pull your bearings and either measure the ID or get the numbers off of them.


    This is where i bought my new axle hubs and bearings.

    Are they both that size? Tapered non tapered? You also need to know if your bolt pattern is 4 or 5 and if its 4 or 4.5 inches. and your hub length..

    Also do your self a favor and invest in some bearing buddies. Cheap insurance.

    since you pulled it apart, you should be able to get the number right off the old bearings, races and seals. Once you get those numbers, you should be able to get them at a Napa Auto parts store.

    Those dont include grease seals do they? Wont he also need to know the OD of his axle so the seals ride properly?

    I went thru all of that and ended up buyinga new axle.. Then again my spindles took some damage...

    Kits include: Studded hub with two pressed on race (cups),
    bearings, cutter pin, lug nuts, grease seal,
    and Genuine Bearing Buddy« Model 1980.

    it comes with everything you need. just take off your old hubs...look at your bearing numbers....match them to the kit you need....measure your spindle with a caliper for good measure.
