rear wheel bearing?!?

I am just wondering what is so special about the rear wheel bearing. It seems way over priced for a bearing but I figure there is something that I don't know about it...

ever seen it?! it's not like a front bearing, it's sealed and a B*TCH to install

last one I got was around $50, not bad if you ask me... YMMV

C'mon Wayne...

The bearing install is not that bad. All you have to do is borrow my bearing remover/installer.

Ya but 50 for a bearing just seems crazy. 20 is a little more sane and 10 bux is sold LOL

I seem to remember reading somewhere that an AUDI 5000 wheel bearing fits in the 914. It was stronger AND more expensive.
Worse yet if you screw up a new bearing during install you get to buy another one.
