Just wanting some input on bearing brands. I see some reviews of King saying they are great, and some saying they arent, same way with ACL. Any extra input before I decide in ACL?

Thats what I've also been thinking. I know toyota bearings are tested and true. But who makes toyota bearings? I ind it hard to believe they actually make there own.

Power enterprise are the only bearings I would use over Toyota's own but they are a little on the spendy side.

Toyota's are so awesome because you can size them depending on the stamps on the crank and block. Nobody else offers 5+ STOCK sizes of bearing.... they are in .003mm increments iirc.

Just go to the stealership, but make sure to size them out first. Your BGB will outline how to size them.... I know for my alltrac IF my block is stamped 33333, and my crank is stamped 12121, They will be sized as follows...

Journal 1: size 4
Journal 2) size 5
Journal 3: size 4
Journal 5: size 5
Journal 6: size 4

I wouldnt imagine the process would be any different between other toyotas.

I've been trying to figure out how the hell toyota does there bearings. Ima have to get my crank turned and the guy wants me to pick out the bearings I want and he is gonna match the bearing to the crank. I tihnk Ima end up with ACL's cause I cant afford the $$ for toyota.

clevite make very good bearings. i have been using them in my high HP 7th gens for years. OEM bearings cant take the pressures and they squish under turbo applications. but if its an OEM boosted engine then they should be fine. my Supra is a stock engine and its making 700HP with stock bearings

take it for what its worth
