Default Wheel bearing/hub replacement cost?

I'm having my right rear wheel bearing replaced and found out the hub is also damaged now too. What should I be expecting to pay for the replacement of the two? I got a quote of $1200 total using new parts and $800 with used parts. Is this excessive? I had the same trusted mechanic do the left bearing alone a few months ago for a total cost of $250.

...a new hub should only be ~$100...and replacing the hub is simple 'cuz ya gotta have it out of the knuckle, anyway to change bearings.....

....something wrong here.....if he charged $25o for a bearing, it should only be the cost of the hub more for the job.....and a bit for his head, mebbe....

Thanks guys, apparently the hub was completely seized up and took the axle and some other stuff along with it. $400 for a used hub/axle assembly $100 for new bearing/seals and $250 in labor.

Hey guys,
My right rear wheel bearing is acting up on me, and I will be replacing it soon. Anyone know the p/n for the rear wheel bearing? I looked on subaruparts and could not find it!

I did not read the entire thread but why not go to a junk yard or find someone on nasioc with a trashed car and just get the hub used it will have everything already in it bearing wise and just stick it on there yourself its not hard to do. I did it in my own driveway with no clue of what I was doing.

That's not a bad idea.

That's certainly a lot easier than tearing the rear end apart and carting around the hub to a machine shop to have the old bearing pressed out and the new one put in.

A seized bearing sucks - just welding your moving parts together and costs big bucks.
