They must have a scam going on up there I just checked auto zone for the rear hub assembly for the S models which wilol fit 1991-2002 S models so every year made. The duralast or the timkin hub assembley is more for the abs one also checked rock auto. Com same thing the abs hubs are more then the non abs ones. When the saturn dealers were still open and I worked there the abs hubs were always more at the dealer. Even when I worked at the saturn in upstate ny they still were more. The front bearings on those dont matter because the bearings are pressed in and the sensor is mounted to the knuckleThe S model saturn engine and transmissions were designed and built just for those cars. Also the front and rear wheel bearings dont fit any other car but them. Most the parts on the S model saturns are like that. So I call that model saturn the non gm saturn in 2000 when the L model saturns that all changed. That was a opel model and gm took over control of saturn and it was no longer a different kind of car different kind of company. Like they oringal ads and solgans were there were gm parts alternator batterys radios the gm kiss so to speak. But as far as the core of the car it was all saturn those are my fondest memories of all the years of working for saturn is the years before gm took over. It was so unlike any other gm or other car company out there. We had higher customer satisfaction then mercedes bmw jag lexus etc. As far as abs issues on the saturn s model there were few it was a good system there was a bad abs computer here and there but that was rare. Not many bad wheel speed sensors etheir.I think one of the most common things I can think of was the gears on the abs motor packs would loosen up and set codes get noisey etc. Overal it was a really good system the salt destroys wheel bearings though. In socal they last a longtime usually.
