Are aftermarket hubs the same quality as factory?

I just bought a 95 ford bronco. It has manual locking hubs, well passenger side tire was wearing uneven so I took it to a shop to have them look at, well they asked me to come and see. I went over and they told me the things to start with, the bearing had a wurr tlike it was going bad and he pointed out some bushings that needed to be changed and when I did all this I could start to get it aligned. Well after getting the hub off and bearings and races out, I noticed that the seats for the races were machined un even, just wondering if that was normal or not, if that would affect the balance of the wheel, plus when taking the locking hub out I had to bust it out to get to the adjusting nut to remove the hub, bought another locking hub and was just checking it out and noticed that the locking hub would not go into it easily almost like you would have to have it pressed in or somthing, but instead of forcing it i'm asking questions, I don't know if its an after market hub or not, would a factory ford hub have ford stamped on it somwhere, just seems like it would, well hope you got my questions out of all of this tyvm
