I just bought a 1991 Mazda MX6 GT but it needs a new wheel hub (due to the previous owner driving it till the bearing exploding) on the front passenger side. I can't find one online anywhere and was hoping the community could help me out. I really want to bring this car back to its glory days. Is there any other hub sold that is the same size? or someone got one?

I don't think it is the GT wheel hub. Mazda lists the hubs as:
2 wheel disk brakes - GJ51-33-060A
4 wheel disk brakes - GJ55-33-060A

This would mean in north America only turbo charged models have rear disk brakes.
I have LX trims with auto adjust suspension and moonroofs, figured if those where options on LX trim rear disks would be as well.

What makes things more confusing is the fact that when you find part # GJ55-33-060A online they list it for these models, trims and years:

1992 Mazda 626DX, LX2.2L L4 - Gas
1992 Mazda MX-6DX, GT, LX2.2L L4 - Gas
1991 Mazda 626DX, GT, LE, LX2.2L L4 - Gas
1991 Mazda MX-6DX, GT, LE, LX2.2L L4 - Gas
1990 Mazda 626DX, GT, LX2.2L L4 - Gas
1990 Mazda MX-6DX, GT, GT 4WS, LX2.2L L4 - Gas
1989 Mazda 626DX, LX, Turbo2.2L L4 - Gas
1988 Mazda 626DX, LX, Turbo, Turbo 4WS2.2L L4 - Gas

Other sites have one part listed as representing these parts numbers:

CAR MAKEFORD
CAR MODELTELSTAR Generation-2
CAR YEAR88-92
CH NO.CH-12C008
OEM NO.GJ51 33 060A
GJ55 33 060A
GJ51 33 061
GJ55 33 060A
GJ51 33 061A
POSITION5H*26T*42MM
If 26T represents 26 teeth or spline count the above ford teslar hubs are not GT turbo hubs.

And I doubt anyone selling them will have a clue if it's for GT or NA axles.
Seems like a crap shoot when ordering.
If part # GJ55 33 060A is a GT turbo axle hub than they are listing incorrect vehicle fitment info.
Non turbo axles have 26 splines and the Turbo axles have 28 splines. Therefore so do the hubs.

You could try calling for this part and ask if someone could count the hub splines:
1988-1992 Mazda Front Hub GJ55-33-060A | Mazda-Parts

If you can't find a GT wheel hub I can sell you a used one for 50$ + shipping.

If that part I ordered does not fit I will buy that hub. Thank you for the information.
