Don't they still sell Sidekicks/Trackers in South America as Escudo's?  You wonder if the parts are the same.
As far as I know the vehicles you know as Sidekicks/Trackers are no longer being built anywhere in the world - they stopped making first gens somewhere around 2002/2003, second gens were made up to maybe 2012/2013.  Third gens, I believe are still being made, but I don't think they will continue to make them for much longer.

When you replace the bearings and seals, you have replaced the parts that wear.  So getting a used hub that hasn't been cross threaded, or ran until the bearings have disappeared, is close to getting a new one.  Whether you or a shop do the work, make sure they are torqued to factory specs.  Most do not, the first time.  150 psi seems unreal.  And it takes a special socket that costs 50 bucks (and it isn't hard to break off one of the tabs around 125 psi, so keep it square).

Yes the hub, my locking hubs mounting bolts have been cross threaded - I thought NAPA had a set but now can't locate a set. Since I need new wheel bearings now is the time to replace the setup and possibly other parts that are worn.  I see some used on eBay but want to see if I can locate a quality aftermarket set with good bearings since its used a little harder than most vehicles are.

What exactly do YOU consider a "front wheel assembly"?

A "wheel" is generally the assembled tire & rim combination - no bearings or seals involved.  Are you looking for a complete front hub?

Anyone know who sells a new 95 Geo Tracker front Wheel assembly for a 4x4?  Was hoping to find a quality one with the bearings and seals.  I don't know if my LSi had ABS plan on looking this weekend but want to find the parts so I can start planning.
Thanks
