Either will do, I can honestly say the one that has lasted the most was a junk yard unit from a ranger.. I've had timkin and ford oem from a parts site and they didn't last too long..

Uh... 98-01 with some more years probably but those years I know for a fact work.

Crazystang, you have a 3rd gen explorer and Rangers won't work. Storlied is getting his years mixed up:D

Also-I was just looking on ebay and found several for around $85 a piece.

Something interesting you should checkout, get a quote for a 99 Ranger and see if they want to charge less.... I've seen them do it for other parts.... Ridiculous.

Would you trust these on ebay just as much as other two listed?

LOL, I was reading this thread and was like, WTF is he talking about? :D


OP-I have a front hub from Mac Auto parts and it's been great so far. Had everything included to bolt it on. Price is very fair as well, I bought mine for $110 to my door!

Edit-I would trust the Mac Auto parts because it worked for me. Ebay is a hit or miss thing, I haven't had the experience and not sure who may have tried them. So for the peace of mind, forget about ebay;)
