I'm fixing to repack my front bearings and I was wondering whether to go with OEM or other grease products. Also where can I buy new bearings (if required) other than the stealership?

I don't know what the factory used to use for their grease, but whatever you use, make sure you clean it out really good. I use red grease myself and I've not really got any complaints. New bearings you can probably get at just about any auto parts store near you.

Mobil1. I'm a big fan of nearly all Mobil1 lubes. I paid $4.xx/tube instead of $2.xx for 'regular' grease.

You can get 3rd party bearings anywhere. My local NAPA had them in stock. If yours doesn't, they can get them in a day or two. Chances are that at least one of the local parts stores in your area has them on the shelf.

I used Quaker state synthetic NGLI 2 rated bearing grease. No complaints. I don't think the brand name matters as much the rating. If you use lesser than a NGLI 2 grease (I hope I have those initials right) You are going to ruin your wheel bearings.
