    My Wrx is injured :(

    So during a little snow storm i curbed one of my wheels. The damage from this ended up being a bent rim, bent strut and i need a new wheel bearing. the dealership wanted 375 for a rim and 325 for a strut so i ebayed a rim for 90 and strut for 20-40 dollars. i dont know what to do about the wheel bearing they want close to 600 for it and i need a new one does anyone know a good place to get one and not pay such a steep price? any help will be appreciated, and if it matters i have an 03 wrx thanks guys!

    Where are you located? Are there any Subaru shops in the area? Call around and get quotes from several places.
    Sounds like the dealer is charging way too much.

    Another curb victim. I think that makes about 20 posted so far this year.....

    Call a junkyard. Best place to find cheap parts.

    went with a garage which specializes in subaru and other imports and got it dropped to 350 for parts and install for the wheel bearing which helps considering dealer wanted 600ish
