Yes, it's the truck in my sig.

I installed 4wd in my truck at 220k km (with what the truck would have come with from the factory), and as part of it, I had the driveshaft shortened to make room for the transfer case. As part of shortening and balancing it, the shop recommended putting in a new CSB, which I ok'd. At that time, the original one didn't look or feel bad, but it likely had a bunch of miles on it. I don't know the brand of the part, don't think it was mentioned on the receipt, but it was likely one of the cheap, generic brands.

Now the truck has 280k km. And the new CSB is a SKF HB88505.

Right now, I think it failed relatively early because it was a cheap part.
