I'm presently redoing a set of rear bearing housings.
I'm looking for the BEST bearings available, FAG use to be the norm, I can find the inner by FAG, but not the outer.
What are the present recommendations for the best quality bearings?

The problem is usually with the outer rollers. They are too loose by new. FAG kits have INA outer rollers which are OK in size.
