Specific to the gearboxes or general bearings? My first port of call for general bearings is BSL Brammer & then Eriks. Both are nationwide with branches in Glasgy.

Many thanks Dave

The two tapered bearings are actually quite good but their shells are looking a little cloudy on the surface so il swap them out.

The needle rollers on either end of the hub carrier have the tiniest bit of discolouration so il swap them out too.

In my experience, it's a good idea to use one of the busiest branches of any supplier you do use. I've had issues with one particular well known supplier sending out roller bearings that have failed very quickly, destroying an engine.

On destructive inspection, they had obvious corrosion pitting on the roller faces-suspect from long storage- as well as the chatter that happened during failure, yet said supplier refused to admit any liability after the cage went through the motor.

Without going into a massive long explanation, they appeared to be running smoothly before installation.
