Looking for some help in finding the correct width rear axle bearing for my 1957 Chev as all the ones I have found so far are wide the same as 1958, the diff housing is all stock 1957.Also need to be really good quality as well. Thanks Guys.

The 57 bearing is approximately .906" wide, part # RW307R. Rock Auto has a Timken, that seems to hold up well.

If you want to put any miles on that bearing you'll get much more life out of an original GM New Departure or NDH bearing, NOT just a Delco bearing. I bought a bearing from a dealer years ago and the box said "Delco Bearing" but it was a BCA brand bearing. They don't last. The number number is 904262 but the bearing and ring part number is 904278R.

Tom Ordway If you don't drive it, why have it?
