Don't put it past OEM dealers to do the exact same thing in today's world of 'truth is not truth'. When I did parts around '10 we had lots of dealer clients that wanted those rapid access parts even if they were cheaper, they relied heavily on the lifetime warranty at the time and they were perfectly content to let the customers think those parts used were OEM parts so that they could charge the much bigger official dealer repair numbers there.
It ain't right but this is Texas, all business people do stuff like that, you ain't American if you aren't doing it. It's buyer beware on everything here, the state backs big business to the loss of the average guy so much it makes you sick.
Take the 'wall' thing. Texas b-tches the most about it ALL the time but pull up a map of the actual border walls built at the southern perimeter and get surprised to find out the same Republicans that b-tch so much about having a border there are the same ones that do NOT want Texas to pay for it as it would up THEIR taxes. Texas has like 9/10ths of all the total US border amount with zero wall at all. Oh, no, they want the FEDERAL government to pay 100% for any wall there and the same federal government they cry about violating 'states rights' all day long with stupid statements of seceding and the like. The j-ckasses that run this state still think they are in the early 1830s where they simply stole everything from the true owners and shot them if they complained about it.
As usual I digress..........you don't know where the bearing came from unless you pull it out of the box, maybe 30% of all bearings now have nothing to do with the box they end up in.
