Q & A

What's in the Box

If you want to keep your original drum brakes on your favorite truck, we have you covered. The original came with ball-type wheel bearings and if you can find them, they are very expensive. Upgrading to modern tapered bearings is the only way to go. Tapered bearings disperse heat better and can deal with today’s grooved roads and modern wheels and tires much better than the original ball type.

  • Kit 916-31952 includes two inner and two outer wheel bearings, race, and two seals.

I'm sorry but part number: 91631952 will not work with a 3/4 ton, and designed for the 1/2 ton only. The spindle bearing sizes for the 1/2 ton are 1.281" I.D., 2.963 O.D. and 1.15" wide (inner) versus the 3/4 ton with 1.4995" I.D., 3.15" O.D. and 1.236" wide (inner). You may try a local bearing & seal company to cross these dimensions to a tapered setup.

This tapered roller bearing conversion kit fits Chevy half ton pickups from 1947 through 1959 and includes the years between. So if you have a 1958 half ton and want to keep your drum brakes but upgrade to tapered roller bearing the kit has you covered.
