Where are did you buy your LN engineering IMS bearing

I'm about to buy a LN engineering IMS bearing for my 2001 3.4. I googled it just to see what my options were and quite a few popped up ranging from $585-950. Just curious where you guys got yours from and what did you pay?

I think someone on here may have a single row for sale because when they got the transmission off they had a double row. They may have had a 2001 engine as well. Have you looked at the flange and positively id'd it as single row?

Those higher priced units are the Single Row Pro, not the Classic unit, which has the cheapest price.

Don't assume anything with these 2000 / 2001 cars......

Mine is a 2001 build date but it is fitted with the double row bearing. That probably means that the engine was assembled sometime in 2000 before being shipped to Finland and co-joined to the chassis.

Never assuming anything with a 2001 car, take it apart and look. I personally own two 2001 models with M96 engines, both purchased new, so I know their entire history. One is a very early production date car (was actually ordered as a 2000 model, but was switched to a 2001 while on order), the other is one of the very last 2001's built; the early car is a single row, the late car is a dual row, exactly backwards from popular thinking on what should be in there.

Yep, 2000 and 01 both require visual inspection of the flange to verify which IMSB is fitted.

Just checked mine and it is a single row. Jake, Is this the old single LN bearing? The part number is off a little and to me the bearing in pic looks like the factory bearing.

Then you have this one too. Only difference is that it's a few $$ more and list more vehicles it fits.

be careful with partsGeek. they are notorious for delivering the wrong part, and they NEVER take returns (even though they have a "30 day return" policy). Ask me how I know.....

My friend's 2001 had a double row.

You have to remove tranny to see what it has if it's a 99, 00 or 01.
Or other years if the engine was ever replaced that you don't know about, There's an 02 here with a double row.
