Hey everyone,
Ordered my rear axle bearings today for $5.44 a piece on closeout from Rock auto. Killer deal! Toyota said there was one OEM left in the country at $164.76.
The part number I chose was the one from Xirdnehs rear axle bearing change video.

PN: National 88506BR.

Did you get new retainer rings or are you going to try using the old ones? Normally I grind them off and replace them.

The part I ordered came with the retainer. The seals were dirt cheap too. Shipping was the most expensive part. Happy with what I got for sure!

Those close out specials are great, I got pretty much the same deal about year ago....a set of front bearings for about $6 each. At my local auto parts store I was quoted $125 each.
