I’ve got a 2006 sierra denali. It’s due for one wheel bearing for sure and figured I’d just swap the other one as well since I’ve got 170k on the clock. I’m looking at the full assemblies. Who’s got the best choice for replacement hubs out there these days?

Heard bad things about Moog.

+1 more for Timken. Pretty much anything else is a certain risk. Timken does or did supply GM with the original bearings. If those lasted 170K, why would you risk trying another brand? Moog would be my second choice if, for some reason, I couldn't get Timken.

Another vote for Timken. Replaced mine with Timkens less than 15k ago. Factory bearings lasted ~165k.

Timken. Replace the spindle nut if you have 4x4. If your bolt that secures the rotor to the hub are ruined or rusted, you can replace with an M8 x 1.25 x 20 from Lowes or wherever.
