Part Details

  • Bearing Type:   Tapered Roller Bearing

What are Tapered Bearings and Why Use Them?

Tapered bearings are better than roller ball bearings at handling forces exerted on the bearing during cornering (known as axial load) in trucks and large cars. 

Roller ball bearings have spherical ball bearings between two straight rings (called races). Tapered bearings use tapered rollers shaped like flat-topped cones and two races angled from the outside to the inside of the bearing. The greater the angle, the more axial load the bearing can handle.

Your model came from the factory with tapered bearings. This type of bearing handles cornering forces better for trucks and large cars. Roller ball bearings work well for smaller cars, but replacing a tapered bearing with a roller ball bearing will result in increased wear and faster failure.


Precision Engineered

From the highest grade SAE 1055 / 65Mn high carbon steel to exact OEM design.
100% Factory tested to precise OEM tolerances.

Highest Quality Materials

High quality, multi-lip seal reduces the intrusion of dirt and water. Heavy duty grease resists high temperature, moisture, and reduces intense friction.

Direct Fit Replacement

Guaranteed to fit and function correctly for your specific application.

will this fit the explorer xls 4x4 ?

Alex P March 2, 2017
I see it says it fits a 2003 mercury montaineer. Mine is Awd and a 4.0 so will this still work? Not sure if that makes a difference

Great Product
I bought this for my Mountaineer and was afraid because of the price I was going to have problems with the installation or quality of the part. Installation was easy. I didnt have any problems with fitting and the part was solid. Ive been driving on it for about 2000 miles now with no issues. I would purchase again. Very speedy delivery also, the company had the part shipped the same day.
December 16, 2017
1A Auto is the way to go for the right parts and very dependable service.
I was greeted on the phone by a knowledgeable staff member who helped me find the wheel bearing for my truck. The price was less than half of most part stores and I received my order in two days. Thank you for getting me back on the road with good quality parts.

Wheel bearing and hub Assembly ford explorer
I have used A1 before to do the upper arm assembly and upper ball joint for my Ford Explorer and the the parts arrived on time and intact. I watched the video on how to replace and completed the job in the estimated time. Sooooo I knew I was going back tot he website when I wanted to replace my front hubs. The video walked me through the installation and the parts matched wonderfully. I would recommend A1 for people who are willing to do the work. Prices are good and the videos are helpful.

A very satisfied consumer LRB
I have nothing but good to say about the professionalism of the staff at 1A-Auto.In the past few months I and my family seemed to be hit by the auto Demon.It is bad enough that your vehicle has issues. But when you have to locate parts for repairs it can be very frustrating and expensive. I was very fortunate to locate 1A-Auto on the computer web site. Not only were the ppl I dealt with professional,they were very pleasant and proficient, the prices were very reasonable.also most of the parts I purchased had as life time warranty. They also provided a tracking number of which you could see when and where your parts would be delivered.
August 9, 2018
Great site
I cant say enough about A1 they have never let me down , not one time . I have bragged them up to many of my friends and family . Every time someone tells me that they need parts I tell them to go on line and try A1 for the best experience ever. Thank you so much for your devotion to your customers . I will never buy from anyone else again.
August 13, 2018
Great product
Fast and fits perfect to my truck, I will buy again

Wheel Bearing / Front end kit
I bought the wheel bearing and front end kit. I was told that after a month the wheel bearing and a front tie rod end were already bad. But I contacted customer service and they have sent out replacement parts. So hopefully these ones are good. Customer service was great and easy to deal with.
November 22, 2019
Great Product. Great Quality. Great Price.
Had an ABS sensor that failed due to a bad wheel bearing. Replaced and hooked up the new assembly and everything works great!

Purchasing a Wheel Bearing Hub for 2003 Ford Explorer 4x4
This was the first time purchasing anything from A1 and I am now hooked. The website was very user friendly I was able to find several options easily to best suit my needs. I loved the different types of delivery options available. My part arrived in 2 days and it was still $78.00 cheaper than anywhere else I had priced. I am definitely purchasing all future auto parts from A1 auto. I am beyond happy with this company!
