Hey sorry I lost the part number and source. I think I have a bad wheel bearing on the above, although there are only maybe 10,000 miles on the sealed bearings I put in last time. Axle good. Hub ok. Castle nut torqued. Washer not reversed. Weird noise cornering right at speed. Nothing doing tight radius slow in the parking lot. Don't know what else to try, but replace wheel bearings.

Looking for recommended best front wheel bearings and seals if needed for 1983 dl EA81 1.8 liter.

There should be a few threads in here about using sealed bearings you can get on ebay for a couple bucks a peice. Try searching a little, if the search function fails to give you results that you want try using google site specific search like your keywords then link:ultimatesubaru.org.
Also this belongs in the old gen section, not historic section. Old gen forum gets more views.
