I was quoted $160 for a rebuilt from carquest.

Maybe you can find a rebuilt kit of some sort, but it's doubtful.

I use www.mralternator.com. He really rebuilds them, not patchwork! Tell him " the Mailman" sent you!

You might try www.1stsubaruparts.com. I think they have Subaru rebuilt alternators for the legacy for less than $100.

Try an alt rebuilding place, maybe they will accept to sell you just the parts.

I work for a shop that rebuilds alternators. Email me with the parts you want @
shoptech@pnhautoelectric.com. It would help if you get the part # off of the alternator but I can also look it up by application. Keith

If you just need bearings and brushes any electrical motor shop should be able to help.

We tried to get the parts to rebuilt alternators, we found that it was cheaper to buy them rebuilt.
