I havent had the best of luck with sleeve bearings. i much prefer ball. hope they do the 15mm in ball and i would happily buy 6 of them.

also 1 of the 2 fans that came with my tundra 03 failes incredibly quickly (i say failed i mean started make a horrible noise so i couldnt use it any more.)
but performance wise they work perfectly adequatlyQuote
