Someone at a parts store said even Timken are now produced in China.Is this true?????I know Timken had a restructuring in 2014....steel still produced in USA but very hard to find info about their wheel bearing division.(Possibly India????)I know this is the first time I've ever had a wheel bearing fail on my trailer in 35+ years of trailering!!!!!According to wheel guys the USA has "standards"that need to be met for imported automobile parts but wink-wink money money money money!!!!!c63

I deliver part time for a parts store. We don't sell Moog bearings and races but we do carry their bearing/hub assemblies, control arms, ball joints, and tie rod ends. They are top of the line in hub assemblies and steering/chassis/suspension components. If I had a choice between Timken, National or Moog bearings I would pay the premium for Moog.

I'm not 100% sure if moogs are produced here. I just drive ford trucks and have to replace bearings every 50000 miles for motocraft 15000 miles for cheap ones at napa or AutoZone (usually refurbished timkins or motocrafts) or well over 100000 for the moogs. Just saying I'll always pay a premium for the moogs over timkins or motocraft.

I used to work in sales for the second largest bearing manufacturer in the world. All the major bearing manufacturers ( timken, koyo, ntn, nsk, skf,etc) all have manufacturing in various countries. Not every application needed the tightest tolerances or best surface finish.
