Do you need bearing buddies? If you have spindles that are drilled with zerk fittings in them and just a cap on your hub, this is a better set up, the grease basically comes out in the rear of the spindle/hub area and will work the air out better so you can have solid grease inside the hub(which is smart for trailers going in saltwater!) Bearing buddies always seem to get stepped on or hit by something and there is enough weight rotating around if they are "off" a bit, they will fly off and then you have a hell of a mess to clean up...



However, if your spindles aren't the ones im talking about, you can get bearing buddies at any autoparts store i believe, wal-mart, any trailer company around town, and just about any place that sells boats.
