Tim, Wal-Mart I think is where I got mine, less than 10 bucks and I have no reason to doubt that it's set right. Very consistent readings and the feeling was right too, and I made sure as Jeff said to rotate the wheel a bunch to free up the grease and make sure the bearing was seated properly. I'd say go with the scale unless you've packed a lot of wheel bearings and know what it's supposed to feel like (don't know how many you've done). Another thing my dad said he always did with the Suburbans was to drive at highway speeds for about 20-30 miles and then get out and feel the hubs; if they're too hot then something's gone wrong, so after I got it all back together I went for a drive and everything felt fine so I knew I was good to go!
