looking for a bearing kit a inner bearing for drive shaft ok and now a taper bearing for the outter diven hub for a 1993 magna front wheel drive only to discover there is no taper bearing for this model leaves us looking at these parts have been changed but to what and what model would suit that has two (2)bearings inner and a taper one for the outter.
Hi,Most vehicles have since moved to a press in bearing as opposed to dual taper bearings. Your vehicle unless it is an odd one out should have the newer press in bearing, NOT taper bearings. If you do have taper bearings, there is no way to "update" the vehicle to press in, as it is a completely different system the way it carries load and would require nearly a total suspension overhaul, if it could even be done (dependent on available 'similar' suspensions).If you have a very late model that still has taper bearings, you will need to take the old ones to a bearing shop to have them matched up. While there will certainly be other models that may use the same size, taper bearings aren't really cross referenced that way in the aftermarket, they are categorized by inner diameter, outer narrow diameter and outer wide diameter, and thickness.Again for a 1993, you should have a press in bearing on this model however
