Rear Hub Bearing Assembly

I finally have determined that my excessive road noise is due to bad bearings in the rear. I have found that all I need to do is replace the Hub Bearing assembly. A relatively simple repair. However I have found a wide variance in parts prices. On ebay I can get a set of 2 ( one for side ) for about $50 with free shipping. However the stock Honda one costs about $150 each. Other after Market brands I have found for anywhere from $60 - $100 each.

Here is the link to the ones on ebay I am looking to buy

Which ones have everyone else used? Any bad experiences with the cheaper ones?

Also just a note, Next time your wife asks you to hull concrete blocks in the back of your Prelude, just say no! The road noise was bad before that, but I think that little trip definitely made things worse. I think my shocks are pretty much done too.

700lb weight capacity if i'm not mistaken, be cautious!


The complete hub assembly is indeed what you will want, either get one from Honda or Rock Auto.

The link you posted is just the bearing. It's easier to do the entire assembly since that just bolts on vs having to pull the bearing and install the new one...somehow....

Read the ebay listing again.
It is the whole assembly, Hub, Bearings, and ABS toothed ring. Just as in the picture. Just wanted to make sure nobody has bought these before, only to have them go bad prematurely.

Re: Rear Hub Bearing Assembly

When Wings says Honda or Rock Auto it's because either he or others he knows have found that to be the best way to go.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Rear Hub Bearing Assembly

Not to doubt you, but the ones on ebay look just like the ones on RockAuto. However after looking at the ones on Rock Auto, there does seem to be a lot of difference between manufacturers. So Let me rephrase my question. Which of the bearing hub assemblies on RockAuto has anybody tried, and what feedback do they have?

Sorry to be short with that reply... I should have learned to not post while in the middle of something... never think clearly.


I'm trying to find you a part number from when I did mine but haven't come across anything.


Wouldn't surprise me if I made a fool of myself once again with my hasty reply - also wouldn't surprise me if I got confused with the 8th gen civic... which i've done a lot of as well




edit* Timken and Moog are both good brands i've dealt with. Moog for suspension related replacement parts - and timken for bearing related parts. Unsure of Moog's quality on bearings.

Re: Rear Hub Bearing Assembly

Thanks for the reply, and thanks for telling me about Rock Auto. Definitely the place I will buy them from. Now its just a matter of determining which ones, as its hard to believe there is no difference between a $30 Hub and a $100 Hub. Each brand is talking up their own specs. Not sure if that is just marketing, or if it really makes a difference.
