Default Best Rear Wheel Bearings

have seen a few threads on wheel bearings but not much discussion on which is best.

At 108K my 2013 Crosstrek drivers rear bearing is starting to make noise. I would like to replace it with something that will last longer. I ordered a NAPA replacement, only to have NAPA cancel the order and tell me the part is no longer available.

Any ideas who has quality, possibly longer life American bearings in their assembly. There seems to be quite a few choices and price ranges out there. Thanks!

Maybe shoot a message to Wolverine12 as he has over 610,000 mile on his 2015 Crosstrek. Im sure he's gone through a few!

I read that.. SUPER SURPRISING.

wonder if they changed something between the 2013 and 2015 models.

Maybe see if the part number is the same for both years? Or if they changed (superseded) the part for earlier years.

I would get NGK or FAG.
Not kidding.
I would stick with Japanese or German.
Anyhow bearing failures are often caused by a sideways bump.
The job will include an alignment if new bearings get pressed.
Check the hubs for concentricity too if you have a chance.
