Did you compare the new bearings/races with the new ones?

It's been some time since I was in this part of my truck so I might not remember everything. But, when I was reinstalling my new bearings, I couldn't get everything to go back together. It turns out the bearings/races AutoZone sold me were dimensionally different than what came off my truck. I took the old bearings with me and went back to AZ. According to their system, they sold me the correct bearings. They pulled out some different part numbers they had in inventory and we found replacements that matched my old bearings.

Got them installed and everything was back to normal. I sold the truck to a friend and he hasn't had any issues with it.

The lesson I learned there is to compare what they give you to what came off the vehicle before you try to install.
