What do you have against Timken?
i know a guy... no really, Timken is currently the world leader in tapered roller bearing and essentially wrote the book on design and optimization of them. I agree, brands like SKF, FAG, Koyo all make quality product and focus very heavily in certain markets, product types, etc. Up thru the...forum.ih8mud.com
Gotta redo wheel bearings on one side, 92 FJ80. Rock auto only has Timken, no Koyo. Trying to track down the Koyo part number (and ideas for a source? Cruiser outfitters is out of stock. Only Timken.)
Works for me. I’ll just call in the morning and get a kit on the way. Far easier than tracking down numbers and piecing stuff out.We definitely have the Koyo in stock! We'll get CruiserTeq tomorrow!
Every bearing distributor in the country can ship these bearings next day. You can buy the cups and cones as as set, or individually; that's important to know, because some distributors list them one way, and some the other. Though you "should" replace them as a set, many industrial users don't, and that's why some distributors list the parts separately.Works for me.

If I were smarter, (life wouldn’t be so hard) and I would have known I needed these in my last order that showed up Thursday. But, here we are.
They are good folks at Cruiser Outfitters! Where are you in FL?
It's not just wheel bearings, all bearings are listed that way. And, FWIW, the bearing doesn't know where it goes, and the bearing distributor doesn't care.For sure.
Panhandle, Ft Walton Beach area.
@Malleus Thanks for the info. Good to know about the Timkens, at least the ones I’d be using anyway. My issue is always finding which ones (part number.) I have definitely noticed it varies on whether they come complete with races or not. Seems odd for wheel bearings, but what do I know.
Bearings are all re-loaded on CruiserTeq.com, all available to ship today. We run our inventory a bit more conservative than some. Rather than list 100% of our in-stock inventory, we save a good deal for 'safety stock' to cover large wholesale orders and phone orders that won't immediately reflect on the CruiserTeq.com site. As time goes on we are refining that inventory listing but we'd rather keep it under our actual count vs sell stuff we can't honestly ship for months.
Long story short, we have 200+ axles worth of Koyo wheel bearings in stock for the 4x/5x/6x/7x/8x axles alone
EDIT: Looks like we indeed got wiped out on a massive wholesale order for bearings. We'll have more Timkens coming Wednesday and Koyo inner bearings only are back-ordered and a few weeks out. We can put a couple orders together, call to order as they lowered the inventory on CT.com
Wow, thanks again. All good info, and the charts are great. I hope those are in a FAQ somewhere on here.It's not just wheel bearings, all bearings are listed that way. And, FWIW, the bearing doesn't know where it goes, and the bearing distributor doesn't care.
The wheel bearings Toyota used on the 80 series were developed by Timken especially for that general automotive application. It's used in a lot of vehicles, in various sizes.

I use ppg 154-155 from the Timken engineering manual when I change out wheel bearings, just to make sure the spindles and hubs aren't out of spec. Generally it shouldn't be a problem with the spindles, since the bearings are slip fit there, but the housings can be damaged (even by someone who knows what they're doing) when the cones are driven out or pressed in, so it's good to check, if for no other reason than piece of mind.
I'll put them in the Resources section, when I get a chance. One of the moderators would have to put it in the FAQ section.Wow, thanks again. All good info, and the charts are great. I hope those are in a FAQ somewhere on here.
I was definitely unaware on the 80 series development. Very cool.
