new rear hub assemblies

does anyone know where to get new rear hub assemblies? all I seem to be able to find is fronts except for on ebay, and I am skeptical of them because the pictures are of a live axle hub. I would just replace the bearings but one of my hubs is bent

thanks

Taurus fronts are the same as the Tbird rear, not sure what years work.

you can get front hubs but only rear bearings. I would just convert to the mustang ones, however all the wheels I use for drifting are the stupid tortoise pattern, so If I converted I would have to buy three sets of wheels.

Get used ones from a junk yard, and then have new bearings pressed into them.

Bearings can be had at RockAuto for as little as $10 or less (especially if you don't mind it being a closeout item ... Timken used to be one of the better names, better than Federal-Mogul, back in the 70's.)

Timken are still great as long as you get the ones made in the USA... I have heard some people ordering Timkens and them not being US Timkens and they werent up to par. I just replaced my front hubs as the bearings were going bad. They have worked well.

The Mustang Bolt Pattern will give you a much more diverse wheel choice but you'll have to look hard to get the right offsets and what not. But it is a worthy Swap. Otherwise I'd do just like Ralph Suggested. Get some from the junk yard. New bearings pressed in and maybe some new lug studs as well.

The two Timkens I got from RockAuto were made in the USA according to the label. Surprise! They're no longer in closeout, but are $4.52 each ... P/N FC66998 (that's also the National part number, but National are pricer, and I don't know National. Nothing against them - I know Timken from the 60's and 70's, growing up, wrenching on jalopies and other cars.)
