Default new wheel bearings

Seems like my car needs new wheel bearings... for those who have replaced wheel bearings on WRX, how much did it cost?

you might actually be able to get some slightly used wheel knuckles at a wrecking yard with good bearings in them for less than a new bearing replacement. all youd have to do is disconnect the bottom of your strut and ball joint, take off the axle nut and then remove the whole knuckle assembly, and replace it with the new knuckle. a wrecking yard quoted me $90 for a whole knuckle until we found out the bearing was bad. this would also cut out the cost of having a shop take out and press in the new bearings and seals.

Dealer charges $700+. I know that seams steep but all of the Detroit area dealers gave me the same price. If you buy the parts separate the tricky thing is setting the bearing into the hub. Dealers have a tool to do this or something. The local shop that replaced the first wheel bearing for me didn't do it right and I ended up wasting $500 cuz I had to have the dealer install one three months latter. If you get a new one repack the grease with a better quality one.
