I know someone on here has changed the wheel bearings on a outback, or legacy for that matter.

I did a search and found a couple relevant threads, but I don't know how to reference or link them to here. The gist of it is you need a hub tamer or similar tool to change out the bearing in place, or you can pull the hub out of the car and have a machine shop press them in
