Default Wheel bearings, hubs, and hub assembly.

Are these somethings that I'd be allowed to cheap out on?
Could I use duralast ones, or ones off of regular neons?

I wouldn't.

Having a wheel bearing go out while you're driving can prove catastrophic. I would suggest getting Timken, National, or OEM. And as far as I know the wheel bearings for the SRT-4 and the regular Neon are different.

You can save some money on them by getting the OEM hubs with Timken SET49 bearings... Do not get regular neon hubs...

I like to avoid using the bearings that I have to pack/repack, and go with sealed bearings. 4 bolts and a new one is in.

Do not cheap out on hubs and/or bearings.

Timken is where it's at. SET49, as said above.

They have an assembly for the rear but you have to purchase the front separate. For the front, get OEM hubs (p/n 4670292AF) and Timken SET49 bearings.

For the rears, just get this:

you can do this by hand either. you have to have a bearing splitter and a hydraulic press to press the hub out of the bearing, then press the bearing out of the hub. FYI.
