Default Wheelbearing

So, I am pretty certain I need a new wheel bearing on the front driver'* side. What'* a good price? I think Advanced Auto quoted me around $150ish. Can anyone reccommend a place that may be better, beside ofcourse NAPA or Autozone. (No Pepboys here). WHat about eBay or someone here?
ALso, last time I had the car on the computer I got the code for the crank sensor. Haven't fixed that yet though. Question is, isn't that on the passenger side? I'm sure it is with my luck.
Anyways, my uncle said he'd do the wheel bearing, and he has the tools, but I was thiking since we have to rip the wheel well apart, might as well do that too. I think the part was only like $30.
Thanks in advance for the responses.

That'* the typical price at a place like AZ or NAPA. Ebay is cheaper and a few have used them with success so far.

The crank sensor is behind the harmonic balancer/crank pulley. You have to pull the balancer off to change it. With your miles, you're probably ready to replace that too, before it fails.

Replace the harmonic balancer? How much we talking for that? And an I right though that you do this from the passenger side?

Yes, the passenger side. The harmonic balancer is the crankshaft pulley - the big one on the bottom of the engine that drives all the belts.

I'd like to know how many of those have been purchased and installed here. I'm looking for a pair for the Zilla. Not sure about the weight of those though, considering what that car has turned into.
