    Left Front Bearings

    hey guys I just got a 2006 Subaru WRX and the left front bearing is starting to whobble (but no noise). Is this like a common thing and how much is it to get a it fixed?

    How do you know there is an issue? Yes,parts go bad. You didn't even state the mileage. Price is not fixed. Call your local shops for quotes.

    How do you know it's a bearing? I'd suspect something wobbling would be more of a tire balancing issue.

    Notice any change in the brakes? If the wheel bearing really has play, then the brake rotor "wobbles" with the wheel. Makes for a longer brake pedal move, if not even the need to pump the brake. Unless you notice a change in the brake, there is no bearing issue. Could be loose nuts, out-of-balance, damaged tire, even bent rim.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?
