Subaru OEM Wheel bearing replacement kits


Wheel bearings on Subaru's need replacing from time to time and when compared to dealer pricing, this OE quality replacement kit can save you $$$.

We have been using these bearings and seals in all of our subarus since 2005, they work great and they are priced even better. Bearings come pre-packed but we recommend repacking with the provided grease.


To order please visit our website here: www.42Autosports.com or click the provided links below for each kit.
Once your payment is received your order will ship within 1-2 business days.

If you are already doing the bearings...we also offer ball joints at a reasonable price. You guys might get a kick out of these.

Sankei 555 Ball Joints: $32 each when purchased with wheel bearings.

Because someone asked further down in the thread - general installation and torque info:


For the fronts torque axle nut to 162 ft-lb
For the rears torque axle nut to 137 ft-lb


Procedure - Either Front or Rear:
Remove Knuckle From Car
Remove Dust Shield
Press Hub From Knuckle
Pry Out Seals
Remove Retainer Clip - On fronts clip is outside, On rears on inside
Press Bearing Out - On fronts press outwards, On rears inwards
Remove ABS Tone Wheel From Hub (If Equipped)
Press Bearing Race From Hub - Use bearing splitter
Clean Everything
Grease New Bearing With Supplied Grease
Press New Bearing Into Knuckle
Install Retainer Clip
Install Outer Oil Seal
Re-install ABS Tone Wheel (If Equipped)
Press Hub Into Bearing/Knuckle
Install Rear Oil Seal(s)
Re-install Knuckle On Car
Torque New Axle Nut to Proper Spec Listed Above
Stake Axle Nut

If you're doing a lot of bearings on your own cars, or have lots of friends and want to split the costs, it's not too pricey to get a 12 ton press and a few monster 3/4" drive sockets that are the correct diameter for pressing the bearings/hubs. Obviously there are special tools for that purpose, but they are quite expensive. Most of the tools needed can be sourced from Harbor Freight or Northern Tool.

I need a rear, any way you could give a quick right up on replacement?
Take off wheel
Take off axle nut, 32mm impact works well
Mark Camber bolt with paint pen or alike. ()
Undo 2 19mm strut bolts
Take castle nut off tie-rod 17mm I think
Remove tie rod from hub.(technically you should probably use a pickle fork but I generally turn the castle nut around thread it until it is flush and smack it with a mallet)
Remove 14mm bolt at base of hub (not the base of bushing)
Use a pry bar and lift the hub out of holder. (I'm sure this has a special name but I don't know it)
Pull hub off axle.
Press inner hub out of bearing
Press bearing out of hub.
Replace with new bearing, bearing grease, and seals.
Put everything back together with new cotter pin.
Make sure to align your camber marks so you shouldn't need an alignment.
Make sure to imprint the axle nut so it wont back out.

That's about it. Not the best right up but basically that's it. And it's 4am, so I'm sleepy.

Glad to help. :)

A group buy wouldn't help us get the price down much more. We'd have to have about 200 people or more wanting to buy all 4 bearings, and I'd imagine the first guy in on that would have lost his wheels by the time the group buy was full. ;)

Whenever you're ready for them just shoot us an email with your info: [email protected]

OMG, best timing ever!! Just sent you an email about ordering kits to replace both fronts on my 2004 STI.
Replied to you.

Awesome! Will this be an ongoing promo?
I'm sure one of my wheels will be needing it soon. Just to add to my many previous experiences. :rolleyes:
Yes sir it will. Until Koyo stops making the bearings at least. :)

Should have something up soon.
