Default How do you find out which bearings to use?

I was on the way home from the lake, when my trailer was smoking. lost a bearing, but cant figure out how to find what size. Its a 1998 roadrunner. whats the best way pull another bearing and match it? I thought my other tire was going to blow out, i pulled it home with the axle chained up.

the autozone guys are phucktards and could figure it out.

That's how I would ID it. I get bearings from the local bearing house.

95%f the auto parts kids are lazy idiots its depressing when you need things and can't give the azzwipe make model and year to plug in to the computer. but i guess you can't make much of a living doing it so try napa or a real jobber parts house, you'll have a better chance. bearing houses can usually match up what you bring the as long as its not a proprietary dimension like some thing that would fit a merc out drive the you'd haev to go eom merc and pay through the nose. i think there are only a few commonly used bearings for trailers though good luck and run bearing buddys and the new ones will last for ever
