04 silverado front wheel hubs

Hey guys, I have a 04 silverado 1500 LS, lowered 2/4, with 20" wheels all the way around, standard backspacing. The problem is I replaced the front wheel hubs, due to a ABS light around 50K miles with MOOG parts, but have had to replace 2 years later AGAIN. I am getting noise and alittle vibration once more and should replace them both again. The question is, is there a heavy duty bearing that I can replace the standard hubs with, thanks for any help with this.

Moog is usually good stuff, are they still under warranty? If not I would find some Timken hubs

Would definitely go with the Timken Bearings/Hubs.

Re: 04 silverado front wheel hubs

I have an '02 4wd and I bought some from Napa that they sold as "heavy duty" and they've been great so far.

I also used Timkens on my 05 Z71 and they've been good.
