    L-body (GLH/SC) front hub/wheel bearings

    Does anybody have the part # for Timken front hub/bearing assemblies for the Omni GLH/Shelby Charger? I was hoping to pick up a pair of these from Rock Auto, but they don’t list the Timken brand as an option. I’d really prefer to have Timken so if I had the part #, I might be able to find them on Amazon or eBay.

    It looks like that is the right part # for the front wheel bearing itself. After further digging, it looks like I need Timken #518502 (whole unit/hub). Can anybody confirm that? According to Amazon, it “fits my ‘86 Dodge Omni” and the notes do say “SHELBY 5-stud”...

    And only about $30 each!!

    I went ahead and ordered them. If it's anything like the KYB GR2 shocks/struts I ordered from Amazon, it will probably be another month or two before they actually ship. I'll confirm then.

    Jeremy,
    Way back in the day when these cars were new, I found out the GLH/SC wheel bearing was the same part # as a minivan from the same time era! Tore up a few wheel bearings auto-crossing the GLHT and all parts books at the time listed only the NA wheel bearing. Rummaging through the local parts stores shelves I found the bearing was actually a minivan part (lol). Might check into that if you can't find what you are looking for.
