Timken repair bearing with new shafts?

I recently just bought alloy USA 8.8 axle shafts and figured I would replace bearing and seals as well. My mistake was that I bought timken repair bearings (1559tv) instead of just regular oem wheel bearings. Since the shafts are new and the bearings are new, would you still install the repair bearings or should I return and get seperate bearings and seals?

not really. just from my experience you wouldnt put trans repair in a new transmission, so why run repair bearings on a new shaft.

I hate repair bearings and I use them as a last resort. No reason to use them on new shafts.

You may as well return them and buy the regular ones. They should be cheaper than the repair ones too!

Using the repair ones won't hurt anything though, the bearing and seal just touch a different part of the shaft than the regular ones do.
