The parts place wheel hub/bearing isn't bad if you have no tools and just don't want to attempt it and don't want to pay someone else more money then that. I bought the tie rods and wheel hubs back in summer 07 for my rabbit car and am still running them. Only problem I saw was the fact you have to cut your brake dust shield off and then bolt it on your new one. I don't have the room for an all out press yet and at the time I did mine I didn't even have a vise to use. I have since bought the tool to do all water cooled VW's front and rear bearings since I had to do my 2004 Golf. The cost of the tool was the cost to pay someone else to do it but now I can do all of my cars and my families so it will slowly pay itself off. Actually if I do one more bearing it will pay for itself and it is done on the car. Good luck.
