How much would it cost to replace the front bearings of a 95 Legacy Wagon? I get a squeak when I drive slow that doesn't go away when I release the brakes. Does this sound like a bearing issue?

Thanx,
Pete

you'll want to check your brake pads first. they can squeak with or without the brakes being depressed. remove wheel and look at the pads/wear indicator. doesn't require anything but removing the wheel, most of the time you can even check them without removing the wheel by turning the steering wheel or manuevering around in the right position.

i removed my hubs, bought a set of wheel bearings (can't recall how much), gave the hubs and bearings to a machine shop and they installedl them for 100 bucks (50 bucks per side).
