For a car that costs $3000 for a headlight, $2000 for a taillight, etc., this really is bargain basement.Like a hub should cost more than $90? Really?
BTW, if you search for these hubs on the web, some sites list them as front only. This is wrong. All four hubs are the same.
I can't imagine there is a high failure rate.
Trust me, Rock Auto and other sellers cannot sell you a hub for a GT for under $90.00. let's put it this way, they could actually sell you a hub for about $40.00 if Ford let them. I spoke with the direct manufacturer that makes that hub for Timken under the Timkem name and they cannot sell it to Timken anymore or anyone other than to Ford. I'd like to know why Ford dealer cost on the GT hub was $235.00 and went to $555.00 when the same manufacturer still makes them for Ford?
I have 2 laying around that are in perfect shape, came off of a 2k mile parts car.hello all:
Looking for a wheel hub assembly for the GT. what I need is a bad one believe it or not. Ford is on indefinite back order on new ones and I have a source who can replace the bearing which is the part that goes bad. in case you don't understand which part I am referring to, it is the hub that the wheel bolts to with the studs. these are removable from the aluminum upright knuckle and is the same on all 4 corners of the car. Ford had the insight to use the same hub on all 4 corners even though the hubs are all splined for the rear axles only and that part doesn't get used for the front. Just need a frozen up or noisey hub. will replace it with a fresh rebuilt unit when I send it back to you.
and please, no Explorer hubs or explanation that they are the same. they are not! thanks for any help my GT brothers can provide. scott
