2012 wheel hub bearing

Thinking of replacing front wheel hub bearing assemblies. They are not bad to my knowledge. But thinking of doing a big 4 link lift so I want to start fresh. What brands have you guys used? Does the needle bearings come in the unit or are they a separate bearing? The bearing units do seem kind of pricey I was quoted 750 for a pair at my local dealer.

You can get high quality parts from other sources resides a dealer, I've always found the dealers to be over priced.

Thanks for the input. I'll check out rock auto too. I'm used to wrenching on cars/trucks I have a 4 bay shop with a lift. After doing some more reading I think I'll opt for the motor craft posts on the wheel hub assy. Here's a pic of my other superduty I built but she's on 5 ton axles. I want a streetable toy now lol.
