1995 civic wheel bearing replacement?

So, i just had new tires put on today, after my old ones were wearing bad on the inside of the front tires.. I was told at the tire shop that this was due to needing an alignment... so I go to Midas to get an alignment, they tell me that was caused the wear on both front tires was the front left wheel bearing needs replacing.

BTW, I can get one easily online for $60-$65...With being out of work and just paying over $300 for tires, I dont have the $419.82 they want to replace the one wheel bearing.

$213.66 for labor
$162.99 for parts
$30.13 for shop supply.

I feel like they are asking WAY to much...

Anyways, Can the wheel bearing make both front tires wear on the inside?

Could I get a Wheel Bearing/Hub assembly from autozone for $67 and just put that on?

Seems easier than replacing just the bearing, since I dont have airtools or a press.

I can tell you that the shop supply fee seems a little high, but the rest seems about right for a shop. Thats 2 hours of labor, which seems perfectly fine.

I'm not extrememly familar with Honda's but I know that some of the years around there had a dumb design where you have to pull the hub off to get the rotor off, then unbolt the bearing from the back. The rotor is sandwhich'ed inbetween the hub and bearing. These can be a major PITA.

How to install wheel bearings/lower ball joints (pic intensive) - Honda-Tech

That should get you started or scare you off depending on your level of confidence in your mechanical skills. You can do it yourself for way less than the shop wants.

Yes, the good bearing has to counter the bad bearings wandering ways thus creating uneven tire wear on that side as well.
I just picked up a '92 DX hatch with a new motor and less than 100K on the meter

shouldnt a bad bearing make some sort of sound though when it's spinning?

Im going to take it somewhere else for a 2nd opinion.... and they just took my BRAND NEW tire off that I had put on today, and then came in and said it was the bearing less than 10 minutes after pulling my car in.

$50ish an hour...sure...even if they get it done in 15 minutes...there is a "set time" for the work involved so you pay that in labor

This is why its ALWAYS a good idea to buy the auto repair book, find a buddy that knows mechanicin', get a case of his favorite beer, buy a good set of basic tools, rent specialized tools if needed, and bust some knuckles while getting all schnozed afterwards.

Some of that crap they charge you for is highway robbery!

Not if its wore or out of tolerance...they usually scream when the bearing grease is gone...I have seen bearing traces worn completely out where you could wobble the tire from side to side almost an inch and it didn't make much noise, a very low roaring noise and made me think the carrier bearing was going out.

Hint#1: If you want to keep your alignment from going to crap again...replace BOTH sides at the same time, so they wear evenly, otherwise you have a good bearing and a older bearing, yes it may stay good for a while...but before long you will be back in there replacing the other side...just like brake pads.

Hint #2: When you get your tires aligned...have fresh tires on them...otherwise they align them to the worn tires...if you replace the tires..guess what...they START miss aligned

I replaced the front bearings a couple of times on a 03 Malibu (it eats them for some reason) and it can be pretty easy, but can get intense if something's frozen due to corrosion or filth. I had a couple of special tools for it, but they're not that expensive, and you may make a couple bucks down the line doing some work cheap for friends. I do have the compressor and air tools, though.

You can test for a bad bearing yourself...jack up that corner of the car and support it. Make sure the steering wheel is locked so it won't turn. With one hand on each side of the tire, wiggle it back and forth. Repeat this with one hand at the top and bottom. Gently try to pull the wheel in and and out too. You'll be able to feel if the bearing is moving.
