i am having issues with my rear wheel bearings,they are making grinding noises,when i drive and the road is not smooth,also when i go in reverse,how long will it take for a mechanic to replace both sides,i am trying to figure out how much i should pay,

depending on year and abs or non abs hub assemblys run $50-100 each depending on where they get tham and quality unless they get them from dealer then they will probably cost more. you can't buy just the bearings, have to replace the bearing and hub assembly. should take less than a hour a side unless everything is super rusty. total cost will depend on shops hourly chanrge

i found a rear wheel bearing on ebay for 40 dollars,even 2 for 50 dollars
i suppose they are good quality,i hope so
unlike the front ,the rear bearing comes with the assembly hub all in one piece
the front comes as bearing and another part is the assembly hub.

they will be cheap chinese bearings but should get at least a year out of them. thats also why i said hub assemblys. for better ones check rock-auto or napa and check warranty length. the chinese ones usually have 1 year or less and better quality has a 3 year one

yeah the rear ones comes as one piece,bearings and hub assembly,the front ones comes as bearing one piece and hub assembly another piece,dont know why is this,i guess hyundai cars have this feature,my car is a hyundai sonata gls 2000 auto trans,i am happy if i can get one year out of chinese parts.

Its not that uncommon. My Stealth has a press in front bearing and a one piece rear bearing.
