Wink Wheel bearings

Hi guys had a strange (x-files esk)experience with my baby. After putting up with a I,m a wheel bearing about to die sound for 5 weeks and replacing 1 full transmission I came to the conclusion that I would have to sell my wife and kid to pay for four wheel bearings when I hit a curb taking out drivers front and back tyres,leaving only one choice which was to change all tyres, hey presto no more wheel bearing sound Yokohamas off Continentals on.PS any advice on new front shocks.

For front shocks I suggest that you try the Subaru OEM. Or you could try the Subaru OEM, the Subaru OEM are good if you are going to replace the rear struts at the same time, but if you are going to do the fronts only, I suggest the Subaru OEM.

The choice of chocks for the Subaru has slightly more variety than your choice of sunlight.

Since replacing all 4 tires with yoko AVS dB the car has never been quieter. Had just replaced both rear bearings too, which accounted for some of the noise, but it seems a lot of noise I blamed on bearings was from the tires.
Tires used in past:
OE bridgestones (were also quiet)
Michelin Pilot
some cheap Yokos cheap but good, however noisy
goodrich comp t/a vr 4 (best tread life)

ads says bridgestone turanza also supposed to be quiet
