WHEEL BEARINGS

Tires and Wheels problem
2004 Pontiac Grand Prix Automatic

I was told at my last oil change that my wheel bearings need replaced. What would the average cost be for parts and labor? And is there a way to decrease cost to me i.E. Buying the parts myself.

Raise car, put on stands. Grasp tire and push/pull both horizontally and vertically. If any movement, then possible wheel bearing, ball joint, tie rod, control arm bushing.

Bearing is "hub assy", they are easier to replace that a pressed on bearing, but front CV axle must be seperated from knuckle.

Hub bearings range from $95-130 and can be changed in 2 hours.
