   - While aftermarket bearings were available in the day, only recently have newly manufactured replacement bearings been made available in two types.   - While aftermarket bearings were available in the day, only recently have newly manufactured replacement bearings been made available in two types.
     - The first type is a new bearing and aluminum housing. If you chose this type you should be aware that the aluminum housing is thicker than the original housing and only leaves 3 or 4 threads left on the stud for the lock washer and nut. The bearing comes with new self-locking grade 8 nuts (the self-locking nut eliminates the need for the lock washer and therefore the space for it), but I would strongly recommend installing longer studs because I don’t believe the original stud was grade 8. This is important because that nut and lock washer are all that keeps the axle from becoming detached from the rear a-arm when you are driving aggressively.     - The first type is a new bearing and aluminum housing.

-      ​- The second type is a new bearing that fits in your old housing. This is so new I haven’t seen one yet. It sounds like a really good solution that fits just like the original and the price is competitive with NOS.+     - The second type is a new bearing that fits in your old housing.
