Default Bearing sizes

I have a 2002 cruiser, getting new front wheel bearings installed, I know that there are 33mm and 39mm bearings for this model year, my manufacture date is 05/02, what size do I need, the auto parts store couldn't even give an exact size and I can't find an answer anywhere, I didn't want to post this because I need to know soon and my history with forums is it usually takes a while to get a definitive answer, I know, you all have other things to do too. This car has been down for a couple weeks now and my ride to work is getting impatient with me. I have read through a lot of things about this but nowhere have I seen a how to tell what size I will need.
Thanks,
Clay

See if the dealer can tell you or give you a oem number. Then you can cross that part number over to an aftermarket.

Thanks for coming back so quickly, I just did a live chat with the dealer in my area, I won't hear till mon. probably, its the weekend, what I was afraid of. I already bought a 39mm from RockAuto, now I'm thinking I got the wrong one, my bad. Turns out I needed the other side too, then I find out about this size issue, I would have thought RockAuto would have this info handy but can't seem to locate it. My manual doesn't even mention the different sizes. I was hoping someone here would already have that info already so I could get them ordered.

I think you will be ok with the 39mm. Rockauto indicates the 39mm was used after 08/10/2001 and the 33mm was used prior to 08/09/2001.

my 2002 has 39. FOR SURE. 2002 is a weird year though. if in doubt, buy 33 locally and return them afterwards. i have 39 on my 2002 though. you should be fine

Update, still working on everything but the bearings are 39mm, I sent my vin number off to the dealer, he came back with a mopar part number, cross reference to the 39mm. Now we are having issues with the vertical bolt holding the control arm on the pass side, stupidist shit I've ever seen how this is put together. went through about 7 postings concerning this, looks like cutting out the floor is the only alternative.
