If northwoodGT does not take both of them, how much are you asking for the other one?

Timken is now listing the hub assembly as an aftermarket supply part.

TIMKEN Part # HA590342View attachment 37287

Does this look like the right part? They show as available for $86 and fit all 4 wheels.

I just had some rebuilt with ceramic bearings! Not cheap but wait for the video on how the wheel will free wheel versus oe bearing..

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

Man, there's gotta be a great story that comes with the hubs!
It is a bad luck/ good luck story. When downtown Calgary, Alberta was flooded it was bad luck for the original owner of this car and his insurance company. It was however lucky for me as I was able to afford an incredible car (with issues). I have since disassembled the car, replaced any parts that I had concerns with and reassembled it. Still a few things to do but most of the work is done. The GT really is an easy car to work on (with the service manual, the technical information in this Forum and the help of members on the Forum).
The help of CanadaGT (advice and parts), tmcphail (majority of new parts, turned out to be cheaper and faster to purchase parts from Torrie even with shipping to Canada), NorthwoodGT (short block - car froze after being flooded before I purchased it), GTG (advice and clamshell lever), nota4re (oil cooler) and my local Ford dealer (program computer) made this project much simpler.
The hubs were one of the items that I replaced.

Just letting the forum know, RockAuto just informed me these are now available and in stock. Yes, these are for the Ford GT and Timken is the OEM supplier. $84.79 each.

So if you need some new hubs or just want a couple spares, now is the time.

I have 4 with 8000miles on them, but they were underwater for 2 days. They are in Saskatchewan, can sent one if you wish.

I just had one fail. I can’t find the Timiken part anywhere. Northwood mentioned rebuilding. The ford part is now $1,100. Any ideas?

Thanks, I placed an order with a different Canadian parts house yesterday that said they were in stock, received an email later in the day that they were out of stock and they cancelled the order.

I placed an order here. If they have inventory I’ll let you know. If not calling Timken tomorrow.

I pulled the earlier email, this was the place that cancelled the order. The price went up slightly, maybe they found some. Otherwise I can’t find this part # anywhere.

The Wrench Monkey was the place that canceled?

Maybe just tell them you will pay their ADM.

I will be honest. It looks like a part that should be more expensive than $150. I am surprised it was ever that affordable.

I am to the point where I am just happy when the part is available.

At least we aren't paying nose-bleed F-car prices for parts etc.

Oh wait. You might be if you buy a Spyker. ;)
