Replacing Front Wheel Bearing...

So, I'm about to order parts to replace my front wheel bearings, using info & Part Numbers from damian on this post back in '04

https://www.rx7club.com/3rd-generati...etails-283722/

PN listed in post for wheel hub: GA5S-26-15XA

Doing a quick search of the wheel hub PN on google lands you on amazon with a febest part of same number listed as a 'Rear Wheel Hub - OEM', with a price i can quite agree with.

I am assuming that on some platforms this is located in rear, hence it being listed as rear, but causing me to pause though the PNs are identical.

Has anyone used this and/or can confirm it fits on the front of our cars? (I may just purchase to confirm)

If you call the dealership to order the parts, then just tell parts guy on the phone you need wheel bearings for all four corners. You won't need the actual part number.

No bearings, you order and get the complete wheel hub.
That is how it was back in the late 90s.

If you decide to go with something different, I went with the Timken 512118 for about $60/each. One of the guys on here recommended them and have worked great
