Should I put in new wheel bearings?
I'm doing a brake job on my '83 El Camino. It has 80K miles on it and the front wheel bearings are original. The outer bearings have nylon roller retainers.
Should I replace them for good measure even though they look OK?
If so, should I get Timken? My Autozone has them in stock. My local Napa has bearings for a better price but they're branded Napa and I don't know who makes them for them.
Also, on the rear, brakes are drum brakes. The thicker padded shoe goes to the rear right?
Been a long time since I've done a brake job.
