Thanks for any help.

If you get aftermarket parts, make sure they are good quality and preferably made in Japan.

Tripe5 parts are good quaility, as are Senkei (spelling?) Toyota uses Senkei parts in many of its vehicles.

Moog makes good parts from what I hear. I understand they are lifetime guaranteed.

Nope. They are the same as the wheel bearings used in the solid axle yotas. The races are a light press inside of the hubs. A good punch and bearing race punch set is all you need. Temkin makes good bearings that can be purchased at most local part stores.

Here you go:

Everything in there should be pretty straight forward. I was a total mechanical noob when I tore into my hubs... 10k miles later, still good! I recommend a 54mm socket for the nuts, and at least a cheap torque wrench. Please don't use screwdrivers and a hammer to set wheel bearing preload!

Do you not have a local auto parts supplier??

If they where selling poor quality parts nobody would buy them and they would be tired of all the returns.

As far as the wheel bearings you can take the numbers and go to your local bearings R` Us and get them.

Lots of good bearings out there. If you install them wrong even the best will fail.
