Default Wheel bearing vs wheel bearing assembly?

My rear wheel bearing is acting up again and I was looking for prices on the web.

The price for the rear wheel bearing alone is around $50 and the wheel bearing assembly is around the same price...
What's the difference? and which one do I need to get?

Last time I got the bearing alone and had to get it pressed in...does the assembly already take care of this?

If the price is around the same, then it's probably the same thing - just different terminology on different websites. Even on the same website I've seen the same part listed with different names - "ABS speed sensor" and "ABS wheel sensor", different manufacturers, but the exact same parts.

Thanks - I called subaru this morning and here is what the tech said.

Depending on the model of ur car - you can get 2 types of bearing assemblies that already has the wheel bearing pressed in. If not, you have to buy the wheel bearing alone and have it pressed in.
The wheel hub assembly has the wheel bearing in it but is only for 2WD cars w/o ABS.
The wheel bearing assembly has the wheel bearing in it as well and is only for AWD.

Just in case anyone else was wondering what's the difference
