I was quoted 400/side for fronts by baierl back when they were suburban Subaru. Had it done at a local shop for 300/side. Haven't killed a rear one yet.

We would charge 310.50 a side plus parts. I have done them myself, a few times... It sucks.

Why aren't you doing this? If you need a hand I can press in and out the bearing for you.

I'll lend a hammer. That's a legitimate pressing method, right?

I even have retaining compound in case you **** up the bore and need to do some creative sanding.

I do still have those 5x114 rear hubs but to make them fit I need to buy an R180 + CV shafts + rear Brembos.

I wouldn't mind doing them myself but the knuckles are unbelievably hard to remove because the long bolt that goes through it and the lateral links is seized. I broke the head off on the left side this past winter and the damn thing is so seized up, the bolt still hasn't budged even after thousands of miles of driving. I was kind of hoping it would fall off while driving.

I hate salt corrosion.

But $300 just for labor is steep. I guess I'll attempt it myself in July. might be easier to drop the entire subframe off the car so I can bang away with a 5lb sledge. Thanks for the offer to help. Hopefully I can take you up on that if I can get the knuckle separated.

LOL, thanks Jimmy.

I wish you luck. We had to replace the whole front knuckle on matt Coles car. The splines of the axle were super seized into the hub. 8lb sledge did nothing. 32 tons on a hydraulic press did nothing. Coat the splines with some good copper or nickle based anti-skeeze on re-assembly

Luckily I've had the CV shafts in and out plenty of times so those are not an issue. It's that long ass lateral link bolt. The nut side has been loosened successfully just a few months ago and put back on with anti-seize. So that'll come out again easily. i wonder if I'll have enough room to swing a hammer if I disconnect the rear struts at the bottom, remove the rear diff/axles and let the knuckle hang low like your mom's tits.

drop the whole subframe, that's what i had to do. you could also sawzall the bolts and drop some poly bushings in those lateral links too. torch to soften the rubber works something
amazing. chemical wrench.

When this happens here we use a torch and cut the bolt in half then pound the bastard out. I just did a 5x114.3 conversion on my car, used the 6gun spacer in the front and in the rear i belive you just need to press the new bearing in. and it accepts a 5x114.3 hub.

I need to do my rear wheel bearings also. Do you have a press or would you take the hub into your work?

I can bring my hub to do my own wheel bearing at my work. But it's my DD so I'd have to toss it in my book bag and ride my bike. On top of that I have never pressed a wheel bearing in and I really don't want to screw it up. All the seals and crap make me feel like I'll do something in the wrong order.

I just take stuff like that into work. I can go in anytime day or night and my friend/coworker that I work on cars with lives only a mile or so from the office.

It's becoming more clear that I will have to sell my wrx. I'm not sure if I should sell as is or put almost back to stock. Only parts I dont have are wheels and brakes. What do you guys think?

i think i have brakes for you. i think that sucks, but if you don't want to sell it, try and get it appraised for as little as possible, and then buy out her half with other stuff.

edit: i got 04 wheels too. beat snows on em tho.

You guys need a hub Shark i use to do them on the vehicle front and rears, money well spent, freeze the new bearing , heat the knuckle and life is easier.
Now i dont work on cars or live in pittsburgh

I wish that was possible.

Kbb has it as 10k to 12k with 104k for the mileage. My car has 64k on it. I'd be happy to get that.

time for a different car, that's a lot of time/miles to be with one chassis. time for new memories! tell me about the brake setup you have on there and how much you want to sell it for with trade for OEM WRX brakes and wheels...

what are you doing with the rollcage?

Paul: Covert late night engine swap with someone's busted engine, suddenly, car broke, and has a lot less value. Best part, easy to find busto engines in the Pittsburgh thread.
