How much would you expect to pay for 2 front wheel bearings installed? Assume this is from a dealer whom you trust and know to do good work.

I have a quote from my local dealer and I want to compare.

Thanks,
Reid

I would say around 300.00 for each side. If you take the spindle and hub off you can take it to a small shop and they will press them in for around 20.00 each.

I'm sorry, this is for a 97 Legacy Outback.

The bearings are $60 a piece from subarugenuineparts.com.

How many hours of labor does this take?

Damn that sounds like a good price! I have a 90 legacy and I called a parts store in town and they wanted something like 110 a piece. At the junkyard it was 18 bucks for the whole hub assembly. I went that route and swapped the hub assembly myself and saved a ton of money. Works great.

I have no idea what the labor would cost you but I would imagine like 75 bucks an hour. (dealer)
