      Rear WB's don't need a press...if its a northern car, you may have to beat the old ones out.

          HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!

          there is an opening on the back side that you can beat on the wheel bearing. it will damage the hell out of it, but i had to do that and pry it out (my brakes were removed at the time since i was replacing them). but you dont need any press. just put some anti seize where it slide in, slip it in place, then bolt it down.

                I just replaced our rear wheel bearings. I got the pair for $160 shipped to the house from Mac autoparts on ebay. Very slow shipping, but the product is very very good.

                  I don't believe you can get seperate bearings and hubs for the rear. It's a complete unit that just bolts on. But like sam said, you may have to use a lil persuasion on the old one if it has rusted on.

                      $160 for both sides. Effing Napa wanted $150 for one side. F that. And they were easy to install once I had the old ones out with a BFH and then a puller.

                      I think there may be a Car Quest here, but I haven't called them.

                      Good luck!!
