So it seems I’ve got a bad front wheel bearing. Seems like passenger side. Car is at 150K so really nothing to complain about. I figure on doing all three bearings (hubs and center support) while I’m taking care of it as the parts are cheap enough. FAG units from rockauto at $112 each. Center support bearing and associated parts from esaabparts. So my big question of the day. I’ve ordered new Cardone 66-9242 drive shafts since I’ll be in there anyway. I know OEM units are really preferred way to go but they are just so expensive. At $50 each for the Cardones they seem worth the limited risk. I’ll be able to keep my original units and can always rebuild them if these Cardone units are a bust.
Thoughts on this strategy?

Also any tips on the center bearing?
Will be replacing driveshaft seals at transmission just to be safe.
