Are the rear wheel bearings on our cars the same as the FWD Galants? The Moog part is listed as fitting both, but I want to be sure before I drove 70 bucks, and wait 4 days for it to get here.



Dirt, snow, grass, or ice if it's a loose surface I'm going sideways and happy about it.

I'll let someone else confirm, but I'd recommend OEM from JNZ at nearly the same price: click

He one is looking at is actually a hub assembly not just the bearing.

NO they are not at all the same. AWD uses two separate bearing on the rear hub spindle. The FWD uses a bearing/hub that bolts onto the the solid beam rear axle stub.

Like Mooserage stated, go with jnztuning and call it day. The price for a complete kit is nearly in line with most auto parts retailers and you get OEM Japanese quality in lieu of Taiwanese/China aftermarket bearings, seals, and dust covers.

I have 2 fwd rear hubs for a 90-94 dsm. Definitely looks nothing like the awd spindle assembly.
