Advice on carrier bearing brand?

I am getting ready to have the drive shaft carrier bearing on my truck replaced. There are different ones available. Any advice on brands to go with or to stay away from? Thanks

2000 Silverado, 4.8 V8, Extended cab 3 door.

A lot of the bearings I get are Timkin; have never had any issues. I don''t know which parts houses carry your particular application using Timkin. Can you post what you're seeing for makers?

Assuming a 1500 based on engine size.

Definitely a second vote on Timken. OEM is always a choice.

I was checking around. No OEM or Timken at Adance.

Timken, National and OEM are among the most costliest.
