    Hi - found this delightfully ruined bearing on my truck, am I correct that this is the remains of an inner wheel bearing? What is the part number? Having a hard time sorting this out with my mechanic, he is fully inexperienced with these vehicles.
    Thanks in advance!

    Not an inner wheel bearing, it's actually a roller bearing inside the spindle on later model 80's, earlier ones had a bushing. Search 'spindle bearing'.

    You might look at replacing it with a bushing, as some around here are of the opinion that the bearing is overly complicated for the task and prone to failure, like yours.

    Thanks for the quick response. I will replace with a bushing as suggested as I agree, this seems like an unneccessarily complicated component.
    *Frustrating part is that this is actually a new bearing - extensive (expensive) service was done including new spindle within the past 500 miles... I suspect that this bearing was not greased during assembly.

    Check the bearing contact surface on the birf, have seen those bearings take it out. If going back with the bearing (I wouldn't) the surface needs to be smooth, a bushing is more forgiving, can handle some texture.

    Hunh, I wonder why I never see that?
    Oh yeah, it’s because mine are the old style.

    (Subtle hint you might want to stick to the solid bushings w/ grease grooves) ;)

    I’m really pro-bushing/no needle bearings.

    Well - that & I been driving the Tundra more of late (so there’s that).

    I'd be curious to see the ID of the spindle give that damage :(

    In my day job, I work with toxic volatile chemicals that need to be contained in fume hoods that have negative pressure. The giant fans that blow the air out of these fume hoods run 24/7 and use oil lubricated bronze bushings like the ones on your cruiser axle and they run for 10 years without maintenance

    So why did Toyota switch to a bearing?

    I bet the bearing was a lot cheaper than a bronze bushing

    I thought about that. The bearing is still part bronze. And I’m pretty sure it costs more. :meh:

    What it costs for the consumer has nothing to do with what it costs to manufacture.
