These are bearings?  Have you tried web searches on each name to see if any are 
made in 'Merica?

I've never heard of these brands, but I think Dura is a OEM for some
things.
These brands I've heard of with timken being the most trustworthy
(IMHO)

Raybestos  $85
Timken $92

Good idea, but not much differentiation:


 WJB$57 CHINA   ZWZ 1 yr warranty

Dura International  $69 1 yr warranty   Probably china  No info COO
 Mevotech		$72  Probably made in CHINA  Canuk company  5 
yr warranty or 1 yr warranty


 
 Raybestos  $85 1 yr warranty   no info COO
 Timken $92 1 yr warranty  no info COO



Moog and SKF are 3 yr
Mopar is 2 yr.

the Mopars lasted 3-4 years including the overheating from the 
defunct accelerometer/antiskid.


I probably should look at the price with shipping for several brands.

Obviously a high use product with 7-10 different vendors.  It is a 
known weakness.  Crypsler quickly redesigned it, but the newer 
designs don't seem to last long either.

Failing that, go to a NAPA store and ask them.

Curly invites opinions:

What would y'all buy?
‎I'd like these to last another 200k

‎If it was for my car, I'd try to find SKF, or FAG bearings. I'd settle for 
Timken. If you enjoy that kind of work and can't wait to do it again, go with a 
lesser brand. 

My experience. 
My 2¢.

Who just bought Made in USA Moog brand tie rods that cost two thirds more than 
the no name China crap, because I DON'T like changing tie rods, and I DON'T 
want one to break while someone I care about is driving.
