1990 all wheel drive rear wheel bearings

Post by SWRT » Mon Sep 10, 2018 8:23 pm

Are the rear wheel bearings in a 1990 all-wheel drive, non abs bolt on or do they have to be pressed into the knuckle?

Are there any good quality rear bearings? The ones on RockAuto look
a bit less than that.


Not sure where to find one that is AWD or if the AWD and FWD rear
bearings are the same. I would think the AWD has teeth for the CV
axles in the rear

I found one for Moog, but it says FWD

The rear AWD & FWD bearings are different. You need to find the AWD ones.

Have you priced out new bearings from one of the online Subaru dealers?

etc...

Sadly I cant even find them on those. I found some
cheap-o hubs on Rockauto from brands I've never
heard of, but the first link I couldn't get to work
and I couldn't find them on the 2nd link.


This is the best I could find so far from PartsGeek:

Have you emailed or called those sites or are you just looking through what's on the website?

Email or call Jamie at Subaru Genuine Parts and let her know what you're looking for. If they still make the wheel bearings she can get them....and even if they don't make them any more she can look at inventories around the country.

If you have 2nd gen legacys (including Outbacks) available at local junkyards, you can use their hubs interchangeably. I'd imagine their bearings are still available.
