Wheel bearing hubs (F) 05 Liberty 3.0RSpecB

Postby pteOMARK » Sat May 04, 2019 7:54 am

So I've got a wheel bearing on the way out.

Whats the opinion on aftermarket hubs vs genuine Subaru/OEM? Can anyone please recommend a brand or even better a vendor.

Mechanic has suggested just buying 2nd hand from wreckers, to me doesn't make much sense to replace a wear part with a used item of unknown condition. Considering buying new instead.

Thanks nvmylh. some folks on the f/b liberty owners page put me onto partsouq, ordered the parts last night.

Price (for 2) front wheel hubs from my local dealership was $613, price from partsouq (for 2) was $285 delivered, easy choice
