How to Determine Correct Bearings


Is it possible to determine which bearing size I need for by trailer by way of vin number? Vin number is 1ZE5MJY16TA011383


Helpful Expert Reply:

No it is not. In order to find the correct wheel bearings you can take apart your hub assembly and looking at the bearings themselves; wipe away the grease and you should be able to see the part number stamped directly on them.

If you are unable to find them, you need to use a digital caliper such as # 301-17068 and measure your spindle to the thousandths of an inch where the bearings ride. You can use the photo I've attached to see exactly where you need to measure.

I've also added a link to a help article on common bearing sizes, as well as a link to our available bearing kits.
