Great value
Installed a pair of these on an 06 Explorer, they arrived on time and fit perfectly. The wiring harness is an exact match to the factory original.

Great part
We got our parts in a timely fashion and for a great price. There was a small amount of damage done which we are assuming it is from when the package was being shipped. Not enough to make the part malfunction though.

wheel bearing
I am very satisfied with my purchase from 1a auto. I needed front wheel bearings and hub assembly for my car. The video made it easy for me to put them on myself and saved me a lot of money on labor.

2007 Ford Exploer Wheel Bearing Hubs
I was a bit hesitant at first about these wheel bearing's based on the price compared to other sellers. I carefully compared these side by side to the original OEM wheel bearings and couldn't tell a difference. I was even surprised at how well the ABS wiring compared to the originals. Everything fit and connected exactly as the originals making the installation simple and straightforward. It is so nice to have the same quiet ride as I did when I purchased the vehicle new.
I would highly recommend these parts and would also like to thank 1A Auto on their fast shipping.
Lastly I would like to comment on the great video's that 1A Auto provides. Having watched the video, I was very confident and prepared to handle replacement.
