So when I rotated the tires today I discovered that my left front wheel bearing is on its way out. RockAuto has two brands to choose from, Timken and BCA/National. Which one should I go with? Both are part number 513092. I'm also getting Dorman part #05113, I just want to make sure that's the right nut.

The stock bearings are Timken; that's what I used.

You will need to press the rear ones apart; the fronts took ~15 minutes.

You need a 36mm socket, and a new nut.

Rockauto has those as well.

EDIT:
This is where I bought the socket...

Kind of my impression too. Ordered the hub and nut, hopefully I can find someone with a socket that's big enough and a torque wrench that can handle 200+ ft/lbs!
