Help! Have Alloy Axles can't find bearing

I put Alloy Axles in the front of my 2003 Jeep TJ Rubicon back in 2005. They have been great. However recently I needed wheel bearing and the shop that I took the Jeep to can't find any wheel bearing that fit.

Would these not have been the stock size?

I also have the teraflex high steer kit. The shop has been through all kinds of bearing too try and the Jeep has been on their lift for a week. Any help would be appreciated!

So... Sounds like you already ordered them. And if you are happy with your Alloy stuff, then, all good I guess.

My Alloy 30 spline stuff was garbage though. When the unit bearings failed, which was only about 30K miles, I simply bought some Superior 4340 outers and good old Timken 27 spline stock bearings. Which, at that time anyway, cost only a little bit more than just another pair of garbage Alloy 30 spline bearings would have cost. But is a much higher quality, stronger setup.
