Thumbs up Re: It's koyo bearings any good ??? For rear end

Koyo bearings for the most part in Service, and some OEM, applications are the old Timken line.
The parent company, JTEKT, bought out Timken roller @4~5 years ago.
They have been manufacturing in the US (NOT China!) since the 50's or something for some high spec bearing applications - think defense ... specially noise and dynamic applications.
They are high quality pieces, and NOT Chinese junk found in cheap 'kits' from some.
I have used them for years and never had a root-cause bearing related failure traced to one yet.

Take it you're commenting about my 'noise' statement.
When testing bearings, specifically for some critical applications, a major criterion was/is how "noisy" (from mismatched components/poor machining-assembly/poor QC-manufacturing specifications-tolerance[s]) they were.
It is VERY important in some applications that things are, and stay, as quite as possible during their life cycles - so others don't know you're there ...

My experience is that there other, non-critical, bearing offerings also have these same high-quality design and assembly characteristics.
