What are Tapered Bearings and Why Use Them?

Tapered bearings are better than roller ball bearings at handling forces exerted on the bearing during cornering (known as axial load) in trucks and large cars. 

Roller ball bearings have spherical ball bearings between two straight rings (called races). Tapered bearings use tapered rollers shaped like flat-topped cones and two races angled from the outside to the inside of the bearing. The greater the angle, the more axial load the bearing can handle.

Your model came from the factory with tapered bearings. This type of bearing handles cornering forces better for trucks and large cars. Roller ball bearings work well for smaller cars, but replacing a tapered bearing with a roller ball bearing will result in increased wear and faster failure.

Seems to work, good price.
Everything fit perfectly, the price was good, and the instructional video helped a lot. Its too bad they dont ship directly to Canada for the same price - I had it sent to the border and drove down to pick it up.

Hub assembly purchase
I recently bought a hub assembly from 1A Auto for my 2007 dodge ram. They are very quick and efficient with their service. I had no issues and I received my product very quickly. I want to say Thank You to 1A Auto for the educational videos on auto repair. Just being able to watch and learn from those saved me a ton of money. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family
