Pretty sure the overwhelming choice is going to be Timken.

Amazon also, but Rock Auto is usually cheaper.

Re: preferred wheel bearings?

From being a manager at Autozone I can tell you for a fact that at least 8 years ago Timken was making the Autozone line of value craft. Some of them even came branded as Timken. The only difference was the price and warranty length. I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of bearings you can buy are still re-brand timkens. Use a high quality grease, repack them at recommended intervals and seal the wheel bearing cap and you will be fine.

Re: preferred wheel bearings?

would you guys confirm this is the correct part for the front 1991. Timken # LM67048 and Timken # LM67010 found them on rock auto. about to order with the acdelco idler arm I ordered inner bearing and race, outer bearing and race, and inner seal. is that everything? I didn't see an outer seal listed

The dust cap is pretty much the outer seal.

Just order the SET6 for the inner bearing and race and SET3 for the outer instead of individually, it's more expensive that way
