Standard wheel bearings or??

I am planning on upgrading my suspenion and brakes. Do I upgrade to never lube axles or keep the standard bearing arrangement? They say 100,000 miles warrantyu but only in 5years. Not much assurance for a large increase in cost between the two.

I would not upgrade to the Never-Lube. For one thing you would need to change out your whole hub assembly which would be very expensive and IMHO are not any better than the Easy Lube. I had the Never-Lube on our old Sunnybrook and ended up changing all four bearings. They were five years old and two of them had play. Changed all four and after takeing them apart found scoring on the inner races and rollers. At least with the Easy Lube you can clean and inspect them at will. We now have a Mountaineer with the Easy Lube. That was one of the selling points to me. Yes, the Nev-R - lube are maintenance free until you loose a wheel.

I wouldn't go to the Never Lube either. You need to take your wheels off periodically to check the brake condition anyway so why not just repack the wheel bearings manually? Works for me.

Thanks, I'm leaning toward the same opinion. Some maintenance on the standard goes a long way. Thanks for the comments.
