    The early RIOs had front bearings that had to be properly shimmed and they were a pain to do by a driveway mechanic... The Spectras don't seem to be the same design...
    Who made the actual bearing? Lot's of cheap Chinese garbage out there...
    Look for a "Timken" roller bearing... made in the USA.. They cost more but last MUCH longer...
    I would be looking for a "donor" car with low mileage for a full spindle ass'y...
    I bought a "rack and pinion" from a donor that had 14k miles on it and it has been perfectly fine...
