Default Replacing rear wheel bearing on my 93 Legacy L FWD

I've been getting a vibration at speed in my 93 Legacy wagon recently. Just last night I started hearing a screeching noise at low speed from the rear of the car. I'm pretty sure I'll need to replace the bearings asap.

Does anyone have a primer on this? Is it pretty straightforward? Are there any unusual tools I might need, besides a bearing puller? Is this a farily common failure for cars of this age?

thanks,
Dan

replacing the wheel bearing is really hard, if you can take the hub off then take the hub to the subie dealer and have them put a new bearing in. you can f the bearing up while you are trying to smash it in. so leave it to the pro's.
