Default Anyone in Central Ohio know how to change wheel bearings?

I live in columbus, I dont have the money to go and pay almost $450 to a shop to replace the bearings. Napa has the bearings for $30bucks a piece. Anyone got a garage and wanna help a fellow PTr out.

They are a b**** to put back on, but not so bad to get them out. It's easier to pull them yourself, pack them, then take them to a shop that will press them back in place. Shop near me wanted $75 for both fronts to press them in, took like 5 minutes....

$75 for press both is a pretty good deal. Money well spent as far as I'm concerned.

Well he charged me for an hour of labor and told me he'd laugh if it took more than 15 minutes.

Kind of makes ya want to buy a press doesn't it. If only you could make a living off of pressing wheel bearings.
