I've gotta get my LH front bearing done, anyone know what KOYO are like? A few places selling them online, or are the genuine ones best?

The Koyo ones are a Japanese brand so i'd expect them to be excellent quality.

Anyone had any good feels with the Koyo bearings? Less than half the price of the replacement front OEM bearings.

CBC bearings in Malaga carry stocks of these. Used many with no problems over the years
