Where to buy wheel bearing

Hey everyone I was wondering what everyone here suggests as a wheel bearing replacement and if possible where to get one. I would just go to auto zone and get one but after going through 3 on my gtp and several others on misc vehicles I am apprehension about getting a cheap parts store one on my wife's car. I normally buy from a speciality store for my gtp but there doesn't seem to be any of those for this car.

So any ideas on which wheel bearing to get? Thanks a lot guys!

His suggestion is good. Or possibly a Napa brand wheel bearing. I own an alero and they are fond for the front hubs going out. 3.5 years ago I changed both fronts out to napa brand bearings and havent had an issue since.

Wheel Bearing Replacement

I just replaced my wheel hub/bearing, axles, tie rods, lower control arms, brake rotors, pads, shocks, basically the whole front end. I checked prices and auto zone and then found autorock.com and bought everything from them. They give you options and you don't have to buy certain brands. I have bought GM parts from them as well. I think I paid about 70.00 for mine hub/bearing whereas autozone wanted twice that price and I shop a lot at autozone. You might check it out. It might help with the wallet. And my I say I have over 110,000 miles on it and the front end responds much much better. I planned on keeping it instead of trading so that is why I changed everything.
