Default Wheel Bearing / Hub replacement parts


From reading around, sounds to me that my wheel bearing is on its way out Also Idles Funky (Though Passed State inspection so doesn't seem to be o2 Sensor related).

Funny how the dealer said they checked everything and car needs nothing

Last time I buy a car Long Distance (MA to MD)

I'm taking the car the my personal mechanic on monday to have him go through the car (gotta love PMs, They do it for FREE Versus Stealerships who charge a 100 fee)

Anyrate, I've been hearing people buying Timken bearings. I take it those last alot longer than factory?

Was looking at purchasing this | | Wheel Bearing - Front | WHEEL BEARING

My question is Do I need this part as well? | | Wheel Bearing - Front | WHEEL BEARING SET

According to autozone I need 2 of them for 1 side! so total is $140 for one wheel bearing "kit"

Plus the cost of the hub | | Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly-Front | DORMAN WHEEL HUB

which comes up to bout $195 + tax in parts for one side

Called sears and wont give me a price on parts but labor is $130 for 1.5 hour flat rate for one side. what sucks bout sears is that they won't let you use your own parts.

Stealership wants $275 parts and labor but makes me wonder if they are using the same cheap bearings

What are your thoughts on this?

God I hope its not both side, I'd only have enough for one next month

($208 tax included + Estimated $130 labor is $338 total each side ) Dealer Price sure looks promising
