Hey guys

I've put in 135k on my 02 subie and the rear driver's side wheel is wobbling. Les Schwab quoted me at ~$440 per side or ~$780 for both.

I've read around and found people quoting around ~$500 for both so I turned the Les Schwab guy down but I'm wondering if I should replace both rear wheel bearings assuming both have worn equally or if doing one side is going to be fine.

Any suggestions?

Anyone have any shops near PDX to replace wheel hub bearings at a reasonable price?

Thanks guys.

One side is fine, no point in doing both if you ask me. That is, if you mean do the other side of the car at the same time.

Yes that price seems very, very high. A dealer did my right rears for under or around $300 as I recall, and in fact you can probably do it for less at a small alignment shop that has a bearing press.

It's definitely a good idea to do both at once. If the passenger side has 135k and isn't toast yet, it will be soon. Might as well do them together as long as you're bringing one to the shop anyway.

Shameless plug:
I have complete hubs from a 99 2.5RS that I replaced the bearings in about 6,000 miles ago. I also have complete Rear hubs from a 2006 wrx that had 26,000 miles on it.
The RS one have the parking brakes removed, But all the parts will be included.
PM me if you are interested.
