Hi Guys.
Could anyone tell me if the front wheel bearing replacements that are available for the l322 are the same as P38's in as much as the cheaper ones are ball type bearing races (that seem to fail prematurely) rather than the correct type which should be roller type races or are they all the same spec??

Many thanks Richard Cheshire UK

Not even close to being the same. Just purchase the proper bearing for which ever year you have. If you are having issues with bearing wear I would make sure you are buying a quality bearing and not getting it contaminated.

No issues with bearing wear, And not comparing sizes . Just the fact that its a known fact that p38 ball race type wear out quicker than roller races. How can you identify a roller race from a ball race on the l322 -- make etc ??as price alone will not dictate good quality.
Regards Richard

Now that you have clarified what you actually are asking it is quite simple. Most bearing suppliers catalogues list by type. If you are working with a retail outlet that has more than one brand listed go to the manufacturers catalogue and look it up. If you can not find it online just ask and let the end supplier do the homework for you as to if it is ball or roller.
