I recently purchased a used Jeep Wrangler and was suggested to replace the front brake pads and left-front wheel bearing. I was wondering do I need to look for a stock wheel bearing or is aftermarket fine? I don't know the make of the brake pads, is there anything wrong with going out and just buying aftermarket brake-pads?
