Replace Full Wheel Hub assembly or just berring.

Hello I have a 2005 nissan altima: I've been driving on a sticking rear caliper for about 5,000KM's before I actually noticed today, From my quick inspection today I'm thinking it just sticking slide pins and I wont have to change the calipers, however with the heat that has generated I think the wheel hub bearing must of seized (I'm going to see if vibration continues after I replace slider pins tomorrow. My question here today is since I don't have a press for the push bearing should I just spend the extra $50.00 and replace the whole wheel hub assembly? I's it fairly easy and is it better than just changing a bearing?

Thanks guys!

There is no "assembly" available, as the Maximas do not use a unit bearing. The bearing must be pressed into the knuckle, then the hub pressed into the bearing.

He's talking about the rear.
To the OP, the rear is SUPER easy to replace with the whole assembly. I wouldn't even bother with a new bearing and pressing it on. I don't know where you are in Canada but usually local napa's carry that stuff or they can at least order it in.

My bad. AFAIK the rear wheel bearing is NLA, and the whole hub is necessary.
