Default Cheapest place to get front wheel bearing assembly?

I know there around 150, but can they go for cheaper?

Thanks Guys!
I searched for a napa parts store near my work and there was one a few minutes away. I bought it for $124 plus $10 for a T40/T45/T50 bit set (didn't have single T50 bit). I did borrow a friends air compressor and impact so hopefully the torque bolts won't give me any problems tonight.
I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Thats funny... I had to buy that torx bit set as well... I think they know we'll all be after a T55( I think it was a T 55 ) Might be wrong... So they don't sell a single one so we have to buy the whole set...LMAO....

To do the rear wheel cylinders on the 91 I had to get Torx socket set

I think the worst part will be the Axle nut and axle splines if they are rusted...

Good Luck

Crap.
I dunno what I was looking at last time I searched but it is a T55.
Well, I'll just stop somewhere on the way home.
I'm glad you said something.

I'm finished.
With air tools, the correct T55 & axle sockets, experience with replacing the whole knucle the other day, and bc knowledge I was able to get it done in a half hour.

Yeah, T55. Fortunately, when I did mine, I had one in my break kit.

Anyhew, they're not bad to do at all. I did the rear, and the longest part of the job was getting all of the old brake dust cleaned up before I put it back together... and I didn't even use air
